“We have registered a case at Bhalswa Dairy police station and arrested the man,” Gaurav Sharma, deputy commissioner of police (outer-north), said.

The DCP said that the sequence of events leading to the alleged killing began with Kumar’s wife walking her pet dog in a street near the couple’s house on Thursday night.

“According to Kumar, a street dog attacked their pet dog, prompting the woman to defend the pet. The street dog then went on to bite his wife too,” the DCP said. The woman then returned home and complained to her husband, Kumar then left the house with a stick and beat the dog to death, he added.

A video shot by a local resident on his mobile phone showed Kumar thrashing the dog with a stick even as another street dog tried to approach multiple times.

Another local resident, who was among those who approached the police with a complaint, alleged that the situation had only arisen after Kumar’s wife pelted stones at the street dog. “We tried to save the dog, but the man wouldn’t listen to us,” the resident said.
