A heart-rending two-minutes long video has emerged on the social media where one can see three youths bludgeoned a stray dog and put it in plastic bag at Delhi’s Munirka area.
Delhi police have registered a case against three unidentified youths after an animal lover lodged a complaint with the south district police.
Additional deputy commissioner of police (south) Chinmoy Biswal said, “An FIR has been lodged under Section 11 of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960 and IPC Section 428 (killing an animal).”
“A case has been registered under Section 428 (mischief by killing or maiming animal) of the Indian Penal Code and Section 11 of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960,” said Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (south) Chinmoy Biswal.
The video was captured around 4 am on Independence Day morning.
In the video one can see youths smashing head of the dog sleeping outside a house.
As the video starts one can see a youth in black shorts and t-shirt picks up a brick from street and hits the dog, followed by several more strikes. A few seconds later another youth can be seen throwing the profusely bleeding dog in a narrow lane.
As the video nears end, one can see the three can be seen packing the dog in plastic bag.
The local police believe the three youths killed the dog to eat it.
