    Over the years, the Bharatiya Janata Party along with its affiliates have been working tirelessly for the protection of cows in the country, as these cattle are considered to be holy animals in Hinduism and are revered by millions of people.

    A man has been arrested for assaulting a calf in India's capital New Delhi, police said on Wednesday. The incident took place on Tuesday. 

    The CCTV footage of the incident, which went viral on Wednesday, shows the calf raging towards the man who was passing by in the street. This enraged the man so much that he first hit the calf with his feet and hands, then he picked up a brick and mercilessly hit the calf repeatedly on its head and backbone until it collapsed.
