Posted by India Times on Friday, 20 April 2017 06:24:03 A dead cat has been removed from a Delhi suburb, after it was found by a fire station worker to be carrying a gun.
The cat was discovered on a side street in Kurukshetra’s Darshan area on Thursday, according to the Animal Protection Society (APS).
The APS said the cat was in a crate in the garage of a house on the outskirts of the district, where the worker, who did not wish to be named, said the worker took it out of the garage to check the cat’s welfare.
The worker did not get the cat back to the house, and alerted police.
He then left it to rot in the back garden of the house for three days, and on Saturday, a worker at a fire house brought it to the APS, where it was put on a drip.
The worker said he removed the gun from the cat, and the APs director general of animal protection, Arun Sharma, said he was “devastated”.APS director general Arun Singh Sharma said the owner of the cat “has not given any explanation for the killing of the animal”.
He added the cat would be returned to its owner after the incident is investigated.
The APs chief, Suresh Singh, said a case of culpable homicide has been registered against the man.
He said the gun was found on the dead cat.
The animal is in a safe place and no one has approached the police, he said.
