FIR Filed Against A Truck Driver In Thane

A stray dog was killed after it was run over by a reversing truck while sleeping on the road in the Wagle Estate, Thane. The Srinagar Police has registered an FIR against the truck driver earlier this week.

According to the police, a complaint was filed on Monday by Wagle Estate resident, Pratik Kochale. He is a 27-year-old student who also tends and feeds to stray dogs in his area. The deceased dog was one of the strays under his care and was named Shaggy.

On November 19, Kochale received a call from one of his friends about a stray dog lying lifeless near Sankalp Bungalow. Kochale rushed to the spot and saw to his shock that it was Shaggy, who had died due to severe multiple injuries. Kochale also conducted Shaggy’s last rites at a temple in the locality.

After some investigation with the help of an NGO, We For A Cause, CCTV footage showed a Mahindra Bolero milk pick-up truck running over Shaggy and then fleeing the scene without stopping to help.

Subsequently, Kochale visited the Srinagar police station with the CCTV footage. He also got in touch with animal rights activist, Nidhi Sawant, who is currently working with the Pure Animal Lover (PAL) Group, an NGO that works against cruelty to animals.

Police have registered an FIR on Monday against the truck driver, booking him for rash driving and mischief by maiming or killing animals under the Indian Penal Code, along with relevant sections of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.
