Definition

Means a goat. It is used to refer to:
(i) the unwitting member of the male species (mostly!) who gets trapped into doing something he may not otherwise have done;
(ii) victim of a prank.
Origin of this term seems to be from the phrase ‘sacrificial lamb’ while usage among the Indian youth was popularised by the TV show ‘MTV Bakra’.

Usage

Tanya: Did you finish your project assignments?
Neha: I finished one and Rohan did the other four for me.
Tanya: So, you got a bakra to do your work!.
