The High Court has intervened in a case relating to the death of two pet dogs owned by an advocate, and sought a police report on the status of the investigation.

Advocate B Sudhakar Reddy had moved court to pull up the station house officer of the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport police station at Shamshabad for not investigating the suspicious death of his two pet dogs on Dec. 31, 2011.

He informed the court that his black Labrador and German Shepherd went missing from his farmhouse at Satamrai in Shamshabad and were found dead near the railway tracks. Vets who conducted a post mortem on the dogs found that they had been beaten to death.

The petitioner lodged a complaint with the airport police and stated that he suspected that one P Venkatesh and others killed his dogs. He alleged that the police did not investigate the case and did not arrest the suspects.

Justice Noushad Ali directed the police to file a report on the investigation. The police informed the court that the petitioner had not cooperated with the investigators and would not furnish the post-mortem report despite repeated requests.

Police also said an investigation of all angles to the case was going on but no suspects could be identified. The judge will hear the case next week.
