Feeding stray dogs would normally be called a good deed but it wasn't the case for a Kandivali resident. Her deed was met with a negative reaction from the chairman of the society she resides in.

Neha Datwani, a resident of Nisarg Heaven Society in Kandivali, was imposed with a fine worth ₹3.60 lakh by the Chairman of the society, Mitesh Bora, for feeding stray dogs in the society premises.

While speaking to news agency ANI, Mitesh Bora said that 98 per cent of society members had passed a resolution to levy fine for feeding dogs in the society premises. Being the society's chairman, it is his duty to make members follow the rules which are framed taking into consideration the majority.

He further said that they have no problem if any society member feeds dogs outside the premises as they are also animal lovers and there is nothing against animal rights. It is a question of human rights too. The rules were made because the dogs are aggressive and concern of hygiene also arises, according to the society members.

Neha Datwani said that they are charging her ₹2,500 per day for feeding the dogs which she was doing on humanitarian grounds. Even animal rights activists turned a deaf ear to her pleas with the society's outstanding maintenance bill of ₹3.60 lakhs till March which includes ₹75,000 for feeding dogs.
