The post-mortem report of the female dog, which was allegedly beaten to death in Sector 49 Housing Board Society on October 28, ruled out any severe injury and suggested that it died of cardiac arrest.
The certificate has been issued by GVH Hallomajra, Chandigarh.

Charanjit Singh of the society said one Bhinder Singh allegedly beaten the female dog with a stick on October 28, after which it succumbed to injuries on October 30.

Reshamjit Kaur of NGO, Protection and Care for Animals (PACFA), filed a complaint at the Sector 49 police station against Bhinder Singh on October 31.

However, no case was registered post investigation and an FIR was ruled out. “In January this year, there was a similar case in the Kendriya Vihar, Sector 48. At that time too, in spite of evidence of videos and pictures, no case was registered citing lack of proof,” said Reshamjit.

Police recorded the statements of the residents of the society, but no case was registered.

Sector 49 station house officer Ranjodh Singh said they did not register any case, as the post-mortem report made it clear that the dog died of cardiac arrest and not from with injuries.
