The accused have been identified as Pooja Dhillon and her husband Raj Dhillon.
We do not know if the puppy is still alive or not and are awaiting updates.
However, the couple has released a video denying their involvement in the incident and have claimed that they are animal lovers and also have a dog at home. They have accused people of using a doctored video for mischief to harm their reputation.
