Society People like Chairman, Secretary, committee members, watchman and sweepers runs a jungle law, they think that they can do anything, upon collecting major votes, So they find easy target to impress each other and do animal cruelty, and shows their dominating nature to others to shut them up, they relocate animals, abuse them, beat them and if they are not satisfied they will kill them, the society people always complaints that there are many dogs and cats in the society, it has become nuisance, but these foolish society people never approach legal authorities for sterilization of animals in the society, they never spend money on society animals for its welfare and also to control population, they adopt easy method of reducing population that is kill them, Car run over, Relocate and many other type of cruelty they do to get rid out of the animals, but will never spend money on them from maintenance for sterilization of animals to control birth and population.
Once they are caught by us or police they will beg to us to leave them, ask for apology and get afraid to face us or police, they can spend amount to pay advocate fee from society maintenance for bail, case and hearing for animal cruelty, which is misuse of funds & cheating, but they will not spend on animal welfare of the society to reduce population.
We have our own community of animal welfare, and our people will always fight back with such cruelty. Read and watch the video of the case of animal cruelty, where we wins at the end.
On 23/7/2017, Shraddha building, in Versova, Yari road, Mumbai, early morning, the secretary of the building named, Mr. Iqbal Menon ordered the sweeper family to throw the cats and kittens from the building and paid them Rs 1000/-, as per the secretary instruction, The father and his 3 son from sweepers family strike the war against the innocent cats and kittens and performed cruelty, they caught 7 cats brutally by hitting them including 4 kittens, used the gunny plastic bags and dumped it to unknown place, the act of animal cruelty was recorded by the resident of the building Mrs. Nigar Shaikh (mother) & daughter Vasiya Shaikh, the Shaikh family shot the video and tried to stop them, but the sweepers were not interested in hearing them, they also witnessed an incident which could not be captured, one of the sweeper lift the cat by choking cat neck, the neck was hold very tightly, out of fear the cat passed the poop, and were dragged the cat out of the society in to gunny bag. Shaikh family tried everything, but the sweeper family was rude and arrogant towards the family and didn't paid any attention to them.
The local activist of Andheri west area gathered and tried hard and took all efforts to get the cats & kittens back, but the society and sweepers were stubborn, the sweepers were asked where are the animals, they each and every time replied don't speak to us, speak to Secretary Iqbal Menon, The activist and the complainer approached police station and asked for help, even police tried contacting secretary, but he always bang the phone of police by saying that it's the society decision, when secretary was called to police station, he replied that he is not well and again disconnected the phone. The attitude of the secretary and the sweepers were as if the animal activist, police and the complainer are selling sim cards to them and they are not interested at all. It took 6 days from the date of incident but the sweeper or secretary never turned to police station and cooperate with them.
Finally the case was transferred to Salim Charania (Private detective and President of Pawa India) by Shaikh family . Professional fees were paid to him to handle the case, the same fees was used for sterilization of stray dogs and it's welfare by Salim.
Salim scanned the video evidence and formed a team to handle the case, Team members - Poonam, Amanpreet, Jay, Sanjay, Bimlesh, Jitu, Gazzia, Abban, Shaikh Family (complainer), and few other joins us for moral support : Seema, Reshma, Md Noorani & Savy
The team was led by Salim and named the team as Karma Returns (KR), and on 28/7/2017,. The KR team went to the spot and met sweepers, the sweepers were not cooperative initially and misbehaved with our female activist. It was must to teach them a lesson that they have to respect animals and it's law. Special vitamins were served to them, and were dragged to police station.
The KR team went to the police station with the accused and informed the case and it's details to duty officer but the fir was already registered by PAWS against unknown, Just under PCA ACT, we really appreciate the efforts of PAWS, but the section was rs 50 fine, The PAWS, did not asked the police officials to impose another act of IPC 429, which says Jail term up to 5 years or fine or both. Salim requested police officers to add up IPC 429 to which he agreed and we got good cooperation and support from the police officers from senior inspector till constable, all were supportive as if they are animal lover like us.
Salim trick the Secretary of the building on the phone and asked him to meet him outside police station, he came with his wife, both were senior citizen and were heart patient, but still the secretary committed the crime at this age. He also put the notice board that the pets are not allowed in the society by owner and tenant. We asked secretary to remove the board immediately and the board was removed. The secretary was questioned by duty officer and his details were taken to mention his name on FIR.
Finally the sweepers opened his mouth and showed us the location, the sweepers dumped the cats and kittens in to large bin area, near God Gift tower, the mother cat picked up the kittens and she found the place in to another society, she was rescued safely from that society and were brought back again to her original location by KR team that is Shraddha Building, another cat was found in the same area upon search.
We are happy that KR team and its supporter rescued 6 cats out of 7, 1 cat is still missing, it's the same cat, who was lifted hard by neck and it's poop pass out in fear. on this facts, IPC 429 will be added, Nirali from PFA is following up the case with police, Police investigation is still on, the next day police came to the society for investigation.
People of animal lover and police requested secretary and sweepers many times during that 6 days period to reveal the location of cats, but they took them lightly and thought that they can't do anything and under estimated them. We were strict with them only for the reason to get the cats back.
It's really not a matter of rich and poor, just for Rs 1000, these sweepers were cruel to animals, the crime never sees the background of the people or person, whether rich or poor, the crime is crime.
