Pune Police have registered a non-cognizable offence after two neighbours from Shivajinagar area had a heated exchange of words over a pet parrot owned by one of them, which was “making noise and causing trouble” to the other.
The case in this regard has been registered at Khadki police station on Friday. The complainant in the case is a 72-year-old man. The complainant told the police that his neighbour has a parrot which makes irritating noises all the time. When he asked the neighbour to take the parrot to another place, the latter allegedly hurled abuses at him and threatened to harm him.
Senior Inspector Dattatray Chavan, in-charge of Khadki police station, confirmed that a non-cognizable offence had been registered based on the complaint filed by the 72-year-old man.
Police have invoked Indian Penal Code section 504 (intentional insult) and 506 (criminal intimidation).
In the case of a non-cognizable offence, police require a court’s nod to initiate probe and arrest the persons named in the case, as against the cognizable offence where police can initiate action on their own.
