In a shocking and inhumane incident, a community dog was allegedly beaten, tied, killed and dumped in an unknown location by the staff of a gated society in Gurgaon.
The incident was reported from a society in sector-66, Gurgaon. According to the complainant, Akshima Jhajharia, RWA members and service provider staff of the society were involved in the henious act.
In her complaint, she said:
The old, calm, docile and peaceful dog was put in a polythene bag and suffocated to death and dumped. The said dog was vaccinated, sterilised and peaceful. He was not a threat or nuisance to anyone in the society.
While she alleged that the society staff conspired the act on receiving complaints by some residents, RWA officials have said that the allegations are baseless.
The RWA and even the estate manager was not apprised of this incident, it has been done in ignorance by some of the guards following a complaint by a resident that a dog was troubling them. In the absence of authority, since it was nighttime, they took some action randomly, which we also condemn.
A few images of the security guards with a polythene bag that allegedly carried the dead dog are also going viral on social media.
Being intolerant to animals & being party to murder are two different things. @SecuritasIndia1 is breeding murderers in the garb of security guards. Look at the glee on their faces. @gurgaonpolice https://t.co/2b21yZsZs4 pic.twitter.com/09ZnAMBbv8— Pooja Bhatt (@PoojaB1972) May 22, 2021

Once those guards are arrested truth will be out who gave instructions to do such a heinous act.— Ralston Dcunha 🇮🇳 😷 (@DcunhaRalston) May 24, 2021
Now the RWA says they didn’t do it. Who instructed the security guards of #PalmDrive #Gurgaon to put an old dog in a plastic bag and dump him? Hope @gurgaonpolice investigates this matter properly. #Haryana #India https://t.co/tY3PceHzE4— Gitanjali Das (@GitanjaliDas89) May 23, 2021
