NEW DELHI: A 28 year old graduate of National Institute of Technology, Delhi was arrested from Lucknow on Saturday, after he was caught on camera brutally stabbing three dogs and killing a puppy at a metro station a month ago in the national capital.

The serial dog killer video which surfaced on social media platforms sparked national outrage demanding strict action against such elements for animal cruelty.

According to the police the accused identified as Nakul Mishra, has been on medication for prolonged depression. He was sacked from his job, had a failed love affair and his own pet dog had died recently.

Mishra's identity was ascertained after local police conducted door-to-door search in all localities under the jurisdiction of Hauz Khas sub-division of Delhi Police and scanned through thousands of tenant verification forms, the official said. On March 15, locals in South Delhi's Green Park area found three injured dogs and a dead puppy near the metro station and called police.

Once police zeroed in on Mishra, it emerged that he left his rented room at south Delhi's Yusuf Sarai area after the incident and shifted to his maternal aunt's residence in east Delhi's Mayur Vihar. Disgruntled and distressed he stayed there for around three days before leaving for his home in Lucknow.

"Humane Society International (HSI) India had announced a reward for information leading to identification of the perpetrator. The organisation had received a call and worked with Delhi Police to track down the accused in Lucknow.HSI, India has demanded jail time and psychiatric intervention for the alleged dog killer," the animal rights NGO said in a statement.

"We hope that there will be a speedy trial and he will be convicted soon," said N G Jayasimha, managing director of HSI, India.
