Patna, Sep 4 (IANS) The Bihar Police has lodged a case of the alleged killing of a pet dog in Vaishali district and begun an investigation into it, officials said here on Sunday.
Chanda Devi of Ghoshwar village lodged an FIR against another villager, Inderdeo Das, alleging that he poisoned and killed her pet dog out of peeve and as a revenge, police station chief Subodh Kumar Mishra said.
Chanda claimed that her pet ‘Tommy’ was as dear to her as a son.
“She mentioned that Das had last week alleged that her pet fog bit his cow. Chanda said this was far from the truth as Tommy was with her at that time and not outside the house,” Mishra said.
Mishra said Tommy’s body was sent for autopsy and its report is awaited before any action is initiated in the case.
Grieving the dog’s loss, Chanda Devi’s household cooked no food and the family has demanded action against the accused.
