Concerned SHOs and investigating officers were also present during the meeting held today.
The community of dog lovers in Dwarka finally have the assurance of the Assistant Commissioner of Police (Dwarka), Rajender Singh. In a meeting held today at his office he promised prompt action against the merciless killings of strays in the last one week.
Concerned SHOs and investigating officers were also present during the meeting.
The ACP said security guards and RWA members would also be questioned on the events that transpired.
Within a span of one week since last Monday, 13 dogs have been killed, and one is in a critical condition. Six dogs were poisoned at Akshardham Apartments in two separate incidents, while seven puppies were stabbed to death at Kargil Apartments.
During the meeting, residents expressed their anxiety about the killings. Most felt the gruesome murders were the handiwork of a “psychopath”, hence a matter of grave concern. Most agreed that they felt unsafe now.
Pratibha Singh from Kargil Apartments requested the ACP to send out a strong message to those who think inflicting violence on animals is acceptable — they should be made to understand that such killings would invite consequences.
Another dog lover from Crescent Apartments in Sector 18, Madhu Dagar, said, “I hope we’ll see results now. The assurance from the ACP has made us feel a bit positive.”
