NEW DELHI: Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj singh Chauhan on Sunday announced the arrest of a man, involved in a cruel attack on a pup, after The New Indian’s Executive Editor Rohan Dua had shared a video showing barbarism and animal cruelty while tagging him and Union civil aviation minister Jyotiraditya Scindia on the social media.

The incident, that took place in Guna, shows a puppy affectionately running to a man sitting on a kerbside, who first lifts it up and then savagely throws it on the road.

Swift and strict action will be taken to ensure justice is served. We unequivocally condemn such acts of barbarism, and the individual responsible will face the consequences.”

Scindia also reacted to the video in a post on X. “This is horrifying and disturbing. There is no doubt that the man should be penalised for this barbarism. @ChouhanShivraj Ji, may please see,” he had said.

The original tweet by TNI’s Rohan Dua read “Dear CM @ChouhanShivraj sir @MPPoliceDeptt @JM_Scindia ji — This is a revolting & barbaric video involving cruelty by a man on a puppy that has shocked the collective conscience. Incident took place in Guna. Sacred texts say dogs have souls of God.”
