Dog beaten to death, carcass dragged on road ‘to scare away’ other canines in UP’s Hathras | Agra News


AGRA: Three persons, who allegedly beat a stray dog to death in Hathras and then dragged its carcass in the area in a bid to “scare away the other canines” have been booked. A video of the incident was also shared on social media platforms.
In the video clip, a group of people can purportedly be seen gathering around the sleeping dog. They were armed with sticks. When the animal woke up and started barking, a man in the group attacked it mercilessly with a stick till it fell silent. Later, two persons tied a rope in the animal’s leg and started dragging it in the locality.
According to the complainant, Mukesh Chaturvedi, when some people tried to intervene, the group warned them against reporting the incident. Chaturvedi also alleged that these people had committed a similar crime earlier also.
When police didn’t register an FIR, he approached Lok Sabha MP Maneka Gandhi.
“Since police had not registered an FIR, I wrote about the incident to UP’s chief minister Yogi Adityanath and BJP MP Maneka Gandhi, an animal welfare activist,” Chaturvedi said.
In response to Chaturvedi’s mail, Maneka’s office informed him that the superintendent of police of Hathras had been alerted and an FIR was being filed.
Later, additional superintendent of police (ASP) Prakash Kumar said that the FIR has been registered against three persons, including two unidentified ones, under section 429 (mischief by killing or maiming cattle) and other sections of IPC at Hathras Gate police station on the basis of Chaturvedi’s complaint.
