STRAY DOG CHASED & BEATEN BY SECURITY GUARDS AT MALAD WEST CASE FILED U/S.119 OF BOMBAY POLICE ACT FINE - 5000



Our President Salim Charania received a request from Nilesh Bhanage, Founder of PAWS that a lady named Dr.Kulkarni needed help with regard to cruelty towards a stray dog.   

Dr.Kulkarni's daughter is a wildlife animal surgeon and they were both willing to bear witness to the incident.    Dr.Kulkarni had complained that she heard a dog howling in pain in Dheeraj Kirti Building at Evershine Nagar, Malad West.  When she went to investigate she found two security guards chasing  and hitting a brown colored stray dog with long bamboos which had iron tips.    On enquiring with the guards,  they were told that the dog had entered the building and they had chased it from under one car to another and behind a water tank.  The guards prevented Dr.Kulkarni from looking behind the water tank and told her that the dog had run away.  Dr.Kulkarni also found the bamboos thrown in the garden area.  She was unable to get the names of the guards but managed to click their pictures. 

The incident happened on Ganesh Chaturti Day when people were bringing their Lord Ganesha statues home.  The dog must have been frightenenedI because of the crackers and loud noise and have taken refuge in the Dheeraj Kirti Building.  Rather than protecting the animal and allowing it to hide, the guards hurt and terrified the animal even further.   

Salim visited Dheeraj Kirti Society on 3rd September.  When he asked the security guard Thakur and Dubey as to why they brutalised the dog, the guard asked Salim "What if the dog had bitten anyone?".  When Salim was talking to the guard, the Society Manager and other security guards came to his rescue and asked Salim to speak to the Chairman & Secretary of the Society.  Salim informed them that this was a legal issue and not connected with society affairs.  Salim then called the Bangur Nagar Police Station and the 2 security guards were taken to the Police Station.  Both the guards were booked u/s.119 of the Bombay Police Act and fined Rs.2500/- each.

LAC NO : 1993

We are thankful to the Bangur Nagar Police Station for their co-operation and prompt action in implementing animal protection laws. 

Lessons learnt :   The guard and society members learnt that it is an punishable offence to chase and hit any animal even if it enters 
                             private property / premises.
