Parrot ‘arrested for swearing at 85-year-old woman’ in India

A parrot has been detained by police in India after an elderly woman filed a complaint against it for making abusive comments.

The parrot, named as Hariyal, was reportedly trained for two years by its owner, Suresh Sakharkar, to abuse his stepmother, Janabai.

The bird apparently insulted Janabai every time she walked past Sakharkar’s home in Rajura, Maharashtra.
