Law For Other Spices - By Maneka Gandhi

Q. In a complaint under Section 428/429 of the IPC in respect of a dog belonging to the complainant who has been poisoned by a neighbour, what kind of evidence should be looked for?

A. If the owner believes that a neighbour is responsible for poisoning their dog, the owner should immediately contact the nearest police officer. The police officer should visit the site and note the condition of the animal. The dog has to be taken to a vet, either private or government, for a post-mortem to determine the cause and approximate time of death. In the meantime the police officer can collect any physical evidence that is available, indicating both the perpetrator and the method used. The police officer must record the statement of witnesses who have seen the poisoning or witnesses who can record the attitude or history of previous cruelty of the alleged perpetrator towards the deceased. Thereafter, the police officer must put up a challan before the court of the concerned Magistrate.
