n what could put Delhi to shame, five resident's of SOuth Delhi's Munirka area bludgeoned a stray dog to death. According to police, their crime was captured by a CCTV camera operating in the street. A woman staying in the locality submitted the footage to the police, following which an FIR was lodged.
Additional DCP (south) Chinmoy Biswal said efforts were being made to identify the perpetrators who could be Munirka residents. They were seen carrying the dog carcass in a plastic bag after the incident.
The footage, a copy of which is with TOI, is dated August 15. It shows the five men in a street at Munirka Village. Three of them approach a mongrel sleeping on the staircase of a shop. They pick up rocks and start hitting the dog on its head repeatedly. One of them then picks up the dog and throws it inside a small corridor to stop blood spilling onto the street.
They then wait for a while for the street to be completely clear of human presence. Then one of them brings out a plastic bag in which the dog's carcass is stuffed.
All five men then leave the spot with the carcass.
The dog was fed regularly by a few locals. In the morning, those people couldn't find it. "Only some blood was lying there. We realised what must have happened. We contacted some shopkeepers who had CCTV cameras installed outside. The footage from one of them showed what had happened," said a local requesting anonymity.
Locals also said that there have been many similar incidents of stray dogs going missing in the locality, leading to fights. Police suspect the men were drunk and killed the animal to eat it.
Another resident claimed that the killers are from the same locality and have been accused of killing dogs in the past as well. He said the police had been informed about it, and they had promised to ramp up patrolling in the area, but did precious little.
