Chandigarh, August 19

A 26-year-old man, who allegedly ran his car over a dog, was arrested from Kapurthala district, the police said today.

His arrest came a day after BJP MP Maneka Gandhi shared a video on social media in which he could purportedly be seen running his vehicle over the dog.

Gurjinder Singh has been arrested, Kapurthala DSP Sarwan Singh said.

The police said 12 dogs had also been recovered from his house. The accused has been booked under relevant sections of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act and the IPC on the complaint of a representative of the People for Animals, the police said.

On Monday, Maneka had posted a video on Twitter, saying: "He is a breeder and seller of dogs for dog fights. This is what he does to dogs when they are no longer useful. This dog died after 30 minutes of being in excruciating pain." — PTI
