The accused Qayum Khan and his wife Afreen were reportedly unhappy with the fact that a stray dog was sleeping near their house in Kasara. The couple is alleged of having thrown acid at the dog, losing its ears and legs as a consequence. 

Fortunately, the dog was treated by Nashik NGO, Sharan for Animals and was then adopted by the founder of the NGO, Sharanya Shetty. The incident was brought to light by PETA India activist, Ashar, who reportedly contacted senior officials of Thane Police (Rural) after learning about this incident.

“PETA India commends the efforts of the Thane (rural) police and thanks them for their clear message that cruelty of animals will not be tolerated,” Ashar said while speaking to TOI. He added that animal cruelty can be decreased only when brought to the notice of the authorities.

Cases of animal cruelty have appeared from time to time in modern society. While there are laws prohibiting this inhuman practice, violators are seldom hindered. Experts have long maintained that stricter laws are necessary to deter future offenders from conducting such heinous acts.
