Register FIR against Maneka Gandhi, court tells police

Friday March 08, 2013 10:55:55 PM, IANS

New Delhi: A Delhi court has directed police to register an FIR on a complaint filed by a doctor against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP and animal rights activist Maneka Gandhi and others for forcibly taking away his eight pet dogs from his house.

"Let the FIR be registered in the present case. SHO shall proceed in investigation in accordance with law. It is noted here that the observations made in this order have no bearing on the merits of the case," said Metropolitan Magistrate Rajesh Malik in his recent order.

Rajesh Kumar Singh, a child specialist and a resident of East of Kailash in south Delhi had filed a complaint against Gandhi and others under various provisions of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act and for theft and trespass under the Indian Penal Code.

Advocate R.K. Tarun, filling the complaint on behalf of Singh, contended that on Nov 26, 2012, some people accompanied by police forcibly entered his house in his absence along with his neighbour and took away his pets.

When the doctor approached police to file the complaint, he was told that his pets were taken away by People For Animals, an organisation run by Gandhi.

The intruders were acting at the behest of Gandhi, the complainant alleged.

He further stated in the complaint that when he went to the NGO's office, he was told that they had acted on the complaint of his neighbour, who claimed that the dogs were in a bad condition and that he was running an illegal breeding centre in his house.
