KARACHI – At least eight people have been apprehended for opening fire at a runaway sacrificial bull in the Scheme 33 area of the country’s largest metropolis.

Reports in local media quoting officials said the charged bull escaped and was wandering across the neighborhood for several hours before it was gunned down with automatic weapons.

As the harrowing clip of the incident took the Internet by storm, Sachal Goth police registered a case and detained the culprits on Wednesday - with the help of footage.

The FIR stated that the owner of the domesticated cattle picked an inexperienced butcher for the sacrifice of a huge bull. The bull escaped minutes before the sacrifice.

The case has been lodged under Animal Act along with various other sections. Police said that further raids are being conducted to arrest other persons who can be seen in the viral video.

In the viral clip of the incident, the bull can be seen damaging several vehicles. Unable to get hold of the bull, its owners resorted to shooting it in the leg before finally getting a chance to sacrifice it.
