Mumbai: Man beats dog to death, arrested
Police on Thursday arrested a 31-year-old man after he was seen in a viral video beating a dog to death with a bamboo stick.
The video was posted on Twitter, and users tagged Mumbai Police and Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil demanding justice. It showed the man justifying the act by saying that the dog damaged his bike's seat cover. The incident took place in Bhagat Singh Nagar-2, a slum in Goregaon (west).
The accused, Imran Shah, a local resident, will be produced before a magistrate on Wednesday.
While animal lovers expressed outrage over the incident on social media, Sudhir Kudalkar, a police officer posted in the state Anti-Corruption Bureau, spotted the video and alerted the Bangur Nagar police station.
