Instead of providing security to citizens and arresting criminals, the police department is busy doing the "donkey work", literally.

The donkeys had been detained at the Urai district jail complex for four days for eating expensive plants in the facility, the kind they would never have had a chance to be fed.

In what can only be termed as an extremely freaky case of official high-handedness, the donkeys were accused of destroying the plants outside the jail despite their owners reportedly being repeatedly warned to not let the animals wander. The donkeys were released today after four days of detention.

First, a few UP cops decide to detain a herd of donkeys for destroying one of the state police stations' expensive plantations. "So we detained the donkeys", head constable RK Mishra told ANI. Donkeys apparently ate and destroyed plants recently bought for Rs 5 lakh.

The fight began after Crabtree appeared to push Talib out of bounds, well after the whistle on a second-down play had blown. Crabtree walked away at first, but then he exchanged punches with Talib, who still had his helmet on.

Urai jail superintendent Sita Ram Sharma told the Times of India: 'There is no such law wherein we can arrest donkeys. "We called the owners several times, and each time, they said the animals didn't belong to them".

As they left Orai jail yesterday, their concerned owner Kamlesh - who had been frantically searching for his livestock after they were locked up - was waiting to meet them.

The donkeys were freed on Monday after a local politician of the state's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) intervened in the wake of a plea by the owner of the donkeys.

"I came here to get my donkeys released".
