On Wednesday, a 40-year-old security guard from a society at Kandivali (East) was arrested for allegedly inserting a rod inside the vagina of a stray dog and pulling out her intestines.

According to DNA, the security guard was identified as Premshankar Rai, who was working at Aashirwad Building in Asha Nagar, Thakur complex, Kandivali. The security guard was arrested after Animal activist Abhishek Kapdoskar along with volunteers of NGO Mumbai Animal Association (MAA). Bindu, who had recently delivered seven puppies, died of the trauma. The incident came to light when MAA’s trustee Nisha Jain found Bindu in the building complex, lying in a pool of blood with her intestines dangling out.

The incident took place on August 16 between 2.30 am to 3.30 am. According to CCTV footage, at 3.30 am Bindu was seen leaving Aashirwad building with something dangling behind her. After Nisha Jain found Bindu, she was rushed to a vet doctor who performed a surgery. Abhishek Kapdoskar told the leading daily, “However, Bindu’s condition was critical as a sharp object had been purposefully inserted inside her vagina, causing fatal damage to the intestines and uterus.” Bindu died of trauma on the same around 3.30 pm.

After gathering evidence and CCTV footage, Abhishek Kapdoskar approached Samta Nagar Police station on August 19 and filed a complaint, and police later began the crackdown. During investigation, two security guards came under the scanner and both were interrogated. Later, Premshankar Rai accepted committing the crime and said Bindu barked at him which made him lose his balance and fall down. So, in anger, he assaulted her. Police booked Rai for killing an animal and cruelty but was released on a bail bond of Rs 3,000.
