ये वीडियो ग़ाज़ियाबाद का है। जहां लिफ़्ट में कुत्ते ने एक बच्चे को काट लिया।— Shubhankar Mishra (@shubhankrmishra) September 6, 2022
गौर करने वाली बात है कि बच्चा दर्द में दिख रहा है पर फिर भी मानों जैसे कुत्ते की मालकिन पर इसका कोई असर ही नहीं। pic.twitter.com/5JLhPdNQgd
The police said they have lodged an FIR under IPC section 289 (negligent conduct with respect to animal) of IPC at Nandgram police station.
Furthermore, police said the video purportedly displays the mindless reaction of the woman towards the minor boy who was crying in pain in the lift but she did nothing to console or help him out.
“We have registered an FIR in this case and an investigation is on. The family of the minor boy approached police on late Monday night and the FIR was registered. The woman with her dog will be identified with the help of CCTV footage taken from inside the lift and suitable action will be taken,” said Nipun Agarwal, superintendent of police.
In her complaint, the minor boy’s mother said her son was coming home in the lift from his tuition at 6pm on Monday.
“When he was in the lift he was bitten by a dog. He was crying and told me about the incident. I called up my husband. The woman was strolling the dog in the basement of the high-rise and she did not tell us her flat number or her name. We shot a video of her. When we showed her picture to the guard, he told us that the woman is resident of the same society. We called up police helpline number 112 but the woman did not come down and instead sent her family members,” the boy’s mother said.
She further said that they also acquired the footage of the CCTV installed in the lift and the incident was clearly visible.
The video of the incident displays the boy attacked by the dog and the woman stood in her place holding the dog with the leash. Further, when she got out of the lift, the dog once again attempted to attack the boy but it was pulled back by the woman.
The minor boy’s family have called for strict action against the woman.
