The Delhi Police are looking for a man who attacked four dogs with a knife outside Green Park Metro station in South Delhi.

Local shopkeepers found the dogs near Gate no. 1 of the Metro station on the morning of March 15, said police.

“There was a lot of blood… a dead puppy was lying there. Some of the other dogs had injury marks from a sharp weapon. We rushed the injured dogs to a clinic,” said Gaurav Vadhvan, who runs a cycle shop.

“When we approached the metro security staff, they said footage from the CCTV camera installed outside the station showed a man attacking the dogs with a knife. They said they can’t investigate the case as the incident took place outside the station. We reported the matter to Hauz Khas police station,” said Varun, an animal rights activist.

Police sources said the CCTV footage shows a bearded man, who appears to be in his 30s, coming out of the station with a knife in his hand. He can be seen killing a puppy and dumping its body on the stairs, before attacking the other dogs.

Police have registered a case under various sections of the IPC and the Animal Preservation Act. “We have launched a search for the accused,” said an officer.

From the CCTV footage, a sketch of the accused has been made and circulated in the area, he added. Varun said a similar incident had taken place about a month ago, near gate no. 3 of Green Park Metro station. “A few dogs were attacked by somebody in the night, but none of them were seriously injured,” he said.

“A day later, two dogs were attacked with a sharp weapon in Gautam Nagar,” Varun added.

On whether street dogs in the area were being targeted, DCP (south) Prem Nath said, “We have no information about any previous incident, but we are looking into all aspects that could help us establish the identity of the accused.”

Fauna Police, an NGO, has announced a reward of Rs 1 lakh to anyone who offers information about the accused.

      Let's us be frank--- this is an unfortunate incident, but likely to continue in other cities of India. Due to the ban on killing stray dogs ( there are confusing judgments by various high courts, but the essence is stray dogs should not be killed), the stray dog potion has multiplied posing a grave danger to people. In Kerala alone, nearly 200 people were killed due to dog bites last year, many kids were maimed for life and many people suffered both physical and financial losses . In several towns in India , people are scared to step out after 6PM or 7PM in the evening afraid of dogs. Now we have to decide our priority, if necessary laws should be amended. For the rich travelling in gleaming foreign cars, it is a fashion to support stray dogs-- it is the poor who are are suffering. In Singapore, where I have lived, the police are empowered to shoot stray dogs.

            Such kind of violent behaviour would have been flagged off and set alarm bells for law enforcers in other countries. Killing and mutilating animals is often the first step towards killing of humans. In any case, this man should be put behind bars immediately for causing loss of life and animal cruelty.
