CHENNAI: Two persons have been arrested in connection with an incident in which a gang allegedly attacked a ten-year-old horse by slitting its throat with a sharp object at Nadukuppam in Triplicane four days ago. Police are conducting inquiries with them.

Police said Rajesh, 35, of Nadukuppam owns three horses. “One of his horses — Abhilak was tied at his shed when a gang slit its throat,” said a police source. “On June 24, he had gone to feed his horses in the shed which is hardly 500 metres away from his house when he found one of the horses bleeding from the neck. He immediately rushed it to the veterinary hospital at Vepery,” the source said.

During investigation, it was revealed that Rajesh recently had a clash with one Gokul of the same locality.
“Gokul would allegedly break car windows and rob valuables and was being hunted by police. Two months ago, a window of a car that was parked in the same area was broken and Rajesh allegedly told the owner it was Gokul who broke it.

“Subsequently, the owner had collected Rs 800 from him for the damage. This led to a fight between the duo and Gokul had threatened to take revenge on Rajesh,” police said.

A special team was formed to trace the suspect. Marina police arrested B Vishaal and R Karthik from the same locality and have launched a hunt for Gokul.

A senior doctor at the hospital said the horse had undergone treatment and has recovered. It will be discharged on Friday.
