Pune :  Eight months after a dog lover filed a complaint about the poisoning of 18 stray dogs in Pune, the police have finally decided to investigate the matter.

The complaint was filed by Preeti Patil, who has been taking care of stray dogs in the Bharati Vidyapeeth area for several years. She told Mirror that in December 2022, 18 dogs in the area suddenly died within a couple of months. She suspected that her neighbors, Shakti Thakur and Shivkumar Thakur, had poisoned the dogs.

Patil took the carcasses of the dogs to the Aundh government veterinary polyclinic, where the doctors confirmed that they had died due to poisoning. The doctors said that the dogs had been sprayed with a poisonous substance, which had affected their lungs.

Patil filed a complaint with the Bharati Vidyapeeth police station, but no action was taken for several months. However, a senior police officer has now directed the police to investigate the matter.

The police have registered a case under Section 429 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), which deals with the killing of animals. They are currently questioning the Thakur brothers and trying to gather more evidence.

Patil is hopeful that the police will take action against the people responsible for the death of the stray dogs. She said that she is doing this for the sake of all the stray animals in the city.

“I want to send a message to everyone that it is not right to harm animals,” she said. “They are living beings and they deserve to be treated with respect.”

The police have assured Patil that they will investigate the matter thoroughly and take action against the culprits. They have also asked the public to come forward with any information that they may have about the case.
