Police sources said they arrested 45-year-old Subrata Nama.
A driver was arrested in an animal cruelty case after allegedly tying a dog to the rear of a vehicle and dragging it through the roads in Tripura. Unfortunately, the dog died after the horrifying act.
A heart-rending photograph of the dog being dragged on the national highway stretch between Agartala and Sabroom in south Tripura prompted strong reactions on social media. The incident reportedly took place on Tuesday.
Police authorities said they arrested 45-year-old Subrata Nama following a complaint by a local dental surgeon. He has been charged under IPC sections relating to animal cruelty and the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. He was produced in a local court, which granted him bail.
The Tripura incident is another awful addition to a rising trend of animal cruelty.
