Man Booked for Shooting Down Dog that Ate His Mutton Dish in UP

Lucknow: A lawyer shot dead his neighbour’s pet dog after it allegedly entered his house and ate a pot of his favourite mutton dish in Uttar Pradesh’s Barabanki. The police have lodged an FIR against this man named Arvind Verma, who claimed that he had cooked the mutton for himself.

The accused, a lawyer, was booked under Sections 307 (attempt to murder), 429 (mischief by killing or maiming cattle), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 504 (intentional insult) of the IPC.

The incident took place two days back in the Vijay Nagar locality of Barabanki. After cooking up a pot of mutton, the accused had gone for a bath, when his neighbour’s pet dog sneaked inside and ate all the meat.

After savouring the mutton, the dog returned back to its owner.

Not finding the mutton, enraged Verma took his licensed gun and shot the dog dead outside his house.

This dog was owned by a school teacher, Kalpana Chaturvedi. She lodged a complaint against the lawyer with the allegation that Arvind used to object to her walking the dog every day and had threatened to kill it. “Even I could have been hit by the bullet,” alleged Kalpana. Her pet dog was a seven-year-old Indian dog named Maddy.

A post-mortem on the dog’s body was conducted. Section of attempt to murder was invoked as the complainant had mentioned that the accused had tried to open fire on her too.
