A "barbaric" act of a Kapurthala-based dog breeder of crushing his dog under the car has caught the attention of animal rights activist and BJP MP Maneka Gandhi.

The MP, who probably got the video from local activists, tweeted it today after which the Punjab Police assured her of action. A few hours later, the Kapurthala police informed her about having filed an FIR against the accused, who is still at large.

MP posts video on twitter

He (accused) is a breeder and seller of dogs for dog fights. This is what he does to them when they are no longer useful. The dog died after 30 minutes of being in excruciating pain. Maneka Gandhi, MP

Posting the video, Gandhi wrote, "This is Gurinder Singh, S/O Harbans Singh, Dandupur village, Kapurthala, Punjab. He is a breeder and seller of dogs for dog fights. This is what he does to dogs when they are no longer useful. The dog died after 30 minutes of being in excruciating pain."

A few hours later, she posted another video of dogs kept in cages by the man and tweeted, "Here's a video of this man's dogs, which he had been using for dog fights. At night, he took all these dogs and threw them in the lake behind his house. One dog drowned but the others have been rescued by the People for Animals (PFA). This man should go to jail."

At this, the Punjab Police replied to the ex-minister, saying, "Madam, the issue has been taken up and referred to the Kapurthala police for immediate and necessary action."

Kapurthala SSP Jaspreet Singh Sidhu said, "The video that Gandhi has posted is an old one. It came to our knowledge last evening as Shalini, a PFA activist, approached us with a complaint and a copy of the video. We got the FIR lodged last night. The man is still absconding and our teams are looking for him." The SSP denied any information about the second incident of dogs being drowned by the accused.
