Noida Police files FIR in case of dog thrashed to death in Sec-74

Noida: Following the death of a female stray dog after being allegedly beaten up by security guards at Supertech Capetown society in Sector-74, Noida police have registered an FIR against the builder, the security agency of the society and four residents of the residential society.
The brutal action against the animal was reportedly done with an intention to take revenge over suspecting the dog of biting a young boy a few days back.
An activist from the NGO People for Animal (PFA), who filed the complaint, said that the dog was not even present in the society when the child was bitten.
"The dog was mercilessly thrashed and beaten by the security guards of the society with sticks on the directions of four residents of the society. She was recently sterilised by SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) and was attacked on Thursday night while sleeping in the society" said Kaveri Bhardwaj, a PFA member.
Recently, a young boy was bitten by a stray dog inside the society premises, after which several residents of the society started spreading hatred among other people on social media networks.
Subsequently, around four to five guards thrashed the dog, which was taken to nearby veterinary hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries on Friday night while getting treatment in the ICU.
As the news spread, members of PFA pressed into action and lodged a complaint in Sector-49 police station. On Saturday, a post-mortem of the dog was also done and the doctors stated the dog has died due to severe injuries to spine and head.
"On the basis of complaint received, an FIR, under Section 429 (mischievous killing or maiming of an animal), Section 11(1)(a) and (l) of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act, 1960 and 120b (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code, has been registered against the builder, security agency of the society and four named residents of the society. Investigations are underway and we are scanning the CCTV footage of the society to find the facts," said Pankaj Pant, station house officer, Sector-49 police station.
