A housing society secretary, Jitu Chandani was charged against animal cruelty by the Mulund police. The FIR filed by residents of Yogi Mills in Mulund states that Jitu often treated stray animals in a cruel manner and 6 of 13 puppies were found missing within a week’s time. The residents of the society tried to find the missing puppies and later found 2 of the 6 tied to a trunk near the building.
“While we were rescuing the two puppies, five unknown persons tried to stop us. They said they have to relocate the puppies as they have become a nuisance to other members of the society,” Chandrakant Shah, a resident told Mid-Day. Many cases have been reported against Jitu ordering workers and residents of the society to relocate and keep the puppies away from society. The secretary even ordered the sweepers and workers to stake the animal’s life at risk for which they would be rewarded in cash, reports Mid-Day. Many times, residents have found Jitu kicking the puppies and depriving them of food and water as well.
“On May 11, when I was at the society gate feeding the puppies, secretary Jitu Chandani came to me and questioned me for feeding the stray dogs. He asked me to not feed the dogs,” Mayuri Harish Gala, resident of the society told Mid-Day. After the charges filed against the secretary, Mayuri’s owner received a letter that stated she shouldn’t feed the strays. If found so, the society would take actions against her.
