Heartless people in that shanty town called Dwarka are killing puppies. Hope Karma gets to them fast.
new case of brutality against animals came to light on Monday with as many as seven dogs killed mercilessly after being tortured in the Dwarka area. The police are trying to zero in on the culprits by scanning footage of CCTVs installed in the area. A case under relevant sections of Animal Cruelty has been registered.
According to the police, an animal activist in Kargil Apartments, Sector 18, Dwarka made a call to the control room regard the dogs' killings.
"A police team reached the spot and called the veterinary van. Thereafter, all dogs were sent to Dabri Veterinary Hospital where the doctor declared them dead. The canines were allegedly subjected to inhuman torture before being killed. The police are probing whether it was the handiwork of single person or group of fanatic individuals are behind the incident," said DCP (Dwarka) Anto Alphonse.
Police said that the bodies of the dogs have been sent for autopsy in order to determine the extent of cruelty and to know if the animals were put to sedation prior to being killed.
"A case under section 429 of the Indian Penal Code and 11L Animal cruelty Act is being registered as per post mortem reports and further investigation is underway," the senior cop further said.
Earlier this month, another such case of animal cruelty was reported when a drunkard mercilessly butchered five puppies and threw them in the garbage after they barked at him. One of the five puppies was brutally flayed and then beheaded. The killer could not be caught as the CCTV cameras installed in the area were out of order.

You reap what you sow, your karma comes back and bites you in the ass...it does for everyone. I have seen this happen to me as well. Kerala as a state is one of the cruelest states in India to animals. To top that the govt. has also been wiping out ecologically fragile areas of Kerala to make resorts and buildings. This was to happen. Here is a small excerpt from a hindustan times report.
Kerala is among the states that receive the highest monsoon rainfall, but sustained low-pressure conditions over India’s western coast this year have caused the flooding in the state, India Meteorological Department officials said. Different studies, however, have found that climate change and deforestation were the main causes of an increase in rainfall.
Environmental scientist Dr VS Vijayan, a member of the expert panel on the Western Ghats, said Kerala was going through a man-made disaster. He said the impact should have been limited if the Gadgil committee report, aimed at protecting ecologically-fragile mountain ranges, was implemented.
He attributed the floods to human incursions and unscientific developmental activities in ecologically-sensitive areas.
“This was waiting to happen. Insensible use of land, soil and rocks led to this deluge. Landslips and flash floods happened in areas that witnessed widespread human incursions. I hope everyone will learn a lesson from this. Due to climate change, such tragedies are bound to increase. Nobody can stop rains or control floods. But we can take measures to lower the intensity of such impacts,” he said.

Maneka Gandhi has sent several letters with allegations of corruption and conflict of interest against S.P. Gupta, who is known to be close to the RSS.
New Delhi: The environment ministry is looking into a series of complaints made against the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh-affiliated chairman of the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI), including those of corruption, conflict of interest and incompetence, environment minister Harsh Vardhan said.
In a letter to Union Minister Maneka Gandhi dated 19 July, Vardhan said he is getting the matter of “replacing the present AWBI Chairperson” looked into.
Vardhan was responding to a series of complaints made by Gandhi against the conduct of S.P. Gupta, a retired IAS officer, who runs his own “cow shelter” and is reported to be close to the RSS. Gupta was appointed as the AWBI chairperson in December last year.
Gandhi has so far written over six letters to the environment minister — all seen by ThePrint — highlighting instances of Gupta’s alleged misconduct.
