Following PETA India’s Complaint, Gandhidham Police Register FIR for Puppy Strangled to Death

Posted on by PETA

After receiving a complaint that a man killed a puppy by viciously strangling him to death for chewing his slippers, PETA India worked with the Gandhidham police to register a First Information Report (FIR) against the perpetrator under Section 429 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Section 11(1)(a) and (l) of The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act, 1960.

Section 429 of the IPC prohibits the mischievous killing or maiming of an animal, making the offender liable to be punished with a jail term of up to five years, with or without a fine. The police have arrested the perpetrator, and the body of the puppy has been sent for a post-mortem.

PETA India is calling for the perpetrator to be punished to the fullest extent of the law, including receiving jail time, and for stricter penalties for acts of cruelty to animals for everyone’s sake.
