A man allegedly severed two legs of a two-month-old puppy after the canine gave him a minor scratch in southwest Delhi’s Dwarka following which police has initiated action against the accused under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.
The incident happened last week when the puppy entered Pramod’s house and the latter offered him food, police said.
In what may be called a love or its eagerness, the dog scratched the accused’s leg with a paw. Pramod got angry and brought a blade to chop off the legs of the puppy, said a senior police officer.
Neighbours claim Pramod, an unemployed man, is often found in an inebriated state.
“Punitive proceeding u/s 11 of PCA act has been initiated against the offender at PS Palam (sic),” tweeted DCP (Southwest) Surender Kumar.
