New Delhi: In a heinous incident, a man allegedly severed two legs of a puppy after the canine gave him a minor scratch in southwest Delhi’s Dwarka Sector 9. 

The Delhi Police has initiated action against the accused, Pramod, under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. 

The incident took place last week when the puppy entered Pramod’s house and the latter offered him food, police said. In what may be called love or its eagerness, the dog scratched the accused’s leg with a paw. Pramod got angry and brought a blade to chop off the legs of the puppy, said a senior police officer.

According to reports in Mail Today, this was not the first time Pramod was allegedly involved in the acts of animal cruelty.

According to Pramod’s peers, the accused used to catch pigeons from a nearby park, roast them and ate them while consuming liquor.

Not only his wife and six children, Pramod's neighbours also knew about his violent acts.

Notably, Pramod has confessed that he chopped off the puppy's legs because he was drunk.

He has also admitted that he had been booked in the past for allegedly stealing utensils and clothes from his relatives. He is out on bail now.
