The 22 dogs that were captured by Coporation workers at the behest of Mogappair Garden Residents Association and taken away last Sunday under the pretext of relocation, were reportedly killed brutally.
Though the carcass of the dogs have not been recovered, photographic evidence, handed over to the police by residents of the area, indicate the brutality that might have led to the dogs suffering serious trauma before succumbing to their injuries. Eyewitnesses, who wished to remain anonymous, said steel strings were used to strangulate the captured dogs and those that tried to resist were hit with sticks.
The Nolambur police have filed a FIR against members of the Association, A Ramamurthy, M Venkatraman, Govindarajan and Senthil Kumar under Section 11 of the Prevention of Cruelty Act.However, Blue Cross of India (BCI) officials who took up the case with the police are unhappy, saying that their original complaint has been diluted.
“We have also filed a complaint seeking an FIR under sections 428 and 419 of the Indian Penal Code, which was not taken into consideration,” said BCI general manager Dawn Williams. Police are continuing with their investigation to locate the spot where the dogs could’ve been buried.
