Residents say they had tied their goats with iron locks outside their homes, but the accused cut the locks and took them. They have registered the case with Agripada police. The incident took place near Saat Rasta at Agripada in Sai Baba Nagar. Residents claim the accused came with an empty truck and took away all the animals.

They have also asked the Dharavi police station for help, and have provided them photos of their stolen goats. The complainants believe the accused might have taken their goats to Dharavi to sell them off. Gohil said, “My goat’s name is Malang and he had been with me for the last four years. He was like a family member.

We believe that all the stolen goats were sold in Dharavi, and, therefore, we have informed the police in that jurisdiction to help us as well.” Another complainant, Heera Sheikh, added, “My three goats have been missing since Tuesday morning.

We checked around the entire area, but couldn’t find them. I had purchased them only 15 days ago.” An officer from Agripada police station said, “We have received the complaint from the residents, but haven’t found the animals yet. We are also taking Dharavi police’s help to find the stolen goats.”
