What Sophie Choudry posted

Sophie Choudry's original post showed a woman hitting a dog with its leash on a footpath in Mumbai. She wrote along with it on Instagram Stories, “Update about the beautiful beagle Bira, who was cruelly beaten by this monster maid. I managed to get in touched with Parth and Shweta, who own the dog.

‘Maid is shockingly still employed’

Further sharing details about the video and the 'maid', Sophie wrote, "Parth told me it was 6-month-old. No idea what the truth is, but they are flying back from Dubai tomorrow (Friday). I confronted the maid in person too, who is shockingly still employed with them." 

The singer concluded by saying the dog was now at a pet shelter. “Bira is now with Jehan Canine Centre (Mumbai). Hopefully, they (the dog's owners) sack this maid tomorrow and take care of Bira (heart and folded hands emojis).”
