An FIR was registered against a man on Wednesday for allegedly putting three stray puppies roaming near his residence in Indore in a sack and dragging them to some distance, leading to the death of one of the canines and leaving another seriously injured, police said on Wednesday.
A complaint was filed by animal rights activist Priyanshu Jain in Lasudia police station after the video of the incident, which occurred on March 19, went viral on social media.
