Animal lover from Dwarka staged a protest on Tuesday evening against the alleged killing of a stray dog in Sector 12, housing society. People from different sectors and residential societies of Dwarka who have been doing welfare for the animals gathered at the service lane of Sector 13 near Radisson Hotel and expressed their displeasure on the cruelty being perpetrated on animals. It was a protest and emotional outpouring against the killing of dog.
The protestors alleged that the dog was a stray and entered a society of Sector 12. Presumably, some individuals caught the dog after a few days and threw it down from a terrace.
Neelam Sharma a social activist present on the occasion had a video of the dog's carcass being put away. "It seems some people caught the dog in a net and threw it from a 10th floor terrace. The terrace which was locked was opened and the people who did it were carrying a black bag and wearing gloves. This shows that what was done was planned. This is cruelty and this should be dealt with as per the law of the land."
The people participating in the candle march shared their experiences of working with stray dogs. Preeti Meena from Sector 14 says that feeding the dogs has become a tough act these days as people are against the dogs. Shaly Tiwari says that in the sub-city cruelty to animals has been witnessed and it must be taken seriously by the authorities.
Protestors were seen holding placards, posters and banners during the silent candle protest. They lit the candles in front of the particular society where the dog was allegedly killed.
Deepak Verma an animal activist who has been instrumental in raising the voice against cruelty to animals says, " he postmortem was done and we were informed verbally that there are multiple bone fractures. We are yet to get the report and file a formal complaint and FIR. We plan to carry this essential formality at the police station soon."
