Karnataka police launch killer hunt targeting stray puppies

Bangalore, Feb 25 (IANS): Karnataka Police have launched a hunt for a puppy killer who targets stray puppies and kills them mercilessly in the locality of Yelahanka in Bengaluru, police said on Friday.

Police say they are investigating the case and checking CCTV footage, taking statements from locals, dog lovers and activists to get clues about the person. They also filed a complaint in this regard on a complaint from Aniruddha BR, an employee of a private company.

Police recovered the carcass of a puppy hanging from a tree opposite a private apartment near Shamarajapura in Yelahanka New Town. The incident was revealed last week and police are awaiting the autopsy report.

A burning incident of three stray puppies had surfaced a few months ago. The miscreant had burned three puppies near a building under construction in Yelahanka.

A complaint was filed by a local resident after the discovery of half-burnt puppy carcasses. According to the police, the two acts appear to be the work of the same person.

Because these incidents took place in isolated locations, it is difficult to trace the culprit or gather information, they said.

However, police have taken up the case under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960 and ICC Section 428 for mischief in killing or maiming animals, saying they will focus soon on the puppy killer.

The investigation is ongoing.
