A 62-year old man died while trying to save his pet dog from being attacked by his friend following a drunken brawl at Modakurichi near here.

Varadharaj suffered serious injuries and died on the spot when his neighbour-friend Lokanathan attempted to beat the Rottweiler dog with a club after it bit him badly Monday, police said.

Lokanathan, wanted by Police, today surrendered before Judicial Magistrate Zakira Banu who remanded him to Judicial custody for 15 days.

Police said Lokanathan, Varadharaj and another friend Ravi had consumed liquor together and the former had allegedly teased the dog. The enraged Rottweiler dog bit Lokanathan causing deep teeth injuries.

Lokanathan got angry and entered into a wordy duel with Varadharaj and in a fit of anger tried to hit the dog hard with a wodden log.

Varadharajan, who attempted to save the dog from getting hit, suffered injuries in the attack and died on the spot.

Police Monday arrested six persons, including Ravi, who supported Lokanathan in the drunken brawl.
