THANE: A man has been booked in Maharashtra's Thane district for allegedly beating to death a puppy, police said Tuesday.

The incident happened in a housing complex in Bhayander township's Shanti Nagar area on July 3, a Thane Rural police official said.

"People of the residential complex were alerted by a caller on July 3 that a man was beating a puppy. They found the puppy dead later. A message soon appeared on social media with a warning that animals would be dealt this way if they entered the complex," he said.

"A person who identified one of the two persons in the social media message filed a complaint with police. Based on it, we have taken a case under Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act and IPC," said Senior Inspector Kailash Brave of Naya Nagar police station. He said no arrests have been made so far in the case.
