In Hulimavu, South Bengaluru, India, a retired police officer was charged on Sunday for intentionally running over a sleeping, stray dog near the man’s home. The officer had been driving when his son spotted the dog on the road.
According to the Indian Express, the retired police officer, 65-year-old Nageshaiah ran over the dog on purpose instead of stopping or blowing the horn to urge the dog to move. The vehicle’s front left tire ran over the dog, and in spite of the two knowing what had happened, drove away leaving the dog to suffer in excruciating pain.
The disturbing event was captured on surveillance video, and when it was posted on social media Monday morning, the video went viral. Nageshaiah faces charges from the Hulimavu Police Station under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act under section 429 of the Indian Penal Code.
The dog is currently being treated at Bozo Wags LLP Veterinary Hospital and Pet Services after local neighbors who heard the dog crying in pain were able to get him help. Sadly, the dog’s chances of survival are slim because of his age and the injuries to his hind legs and spinal cord.
