Supreme Court advocate Jai Anant Dehadrai has accused TMC MP Mahua Moitra of kidnapping his dog Henry

NEW DELHI: TMC MP Mahua Moitra, embroiled in allegations of accepting bribes in exchange for specific parliamentary questions, now faces yet another grave accusation. Supreme Court advocate Jai Anant Dehadrai, who has been at the forefront of raising these charges against the Krishnanagar MP, penned a letter to Delhi Police Commissioner Sanjay Arora on Thursday.

In his letter, Dehadrai detailed a disturbing narrative of what he describes as Moitra’s vengeful vendetta. He alleges that Moitra resorted to a campaign of harassment, which included the shocking act of kidnapping his cherished canine companion, Henry. The motive behind this alleged act was to intimidate and blackmail him in connection to the CBI complaint lodged against Moitra.

The lawyer stated that he anticipates threat and tremendous fear to his life, amid this legal battle with the TMC MP. He provided the documents in the written complaint to prove his legal ownership of Henry, a Rottweiler breed dog which he purchased in January 2021 from a private shop in Delhi’s Janakpuri area.

However, Dehadrai is also reportedly the ‘jilted ex’, that Moitra mentioned in her tweet dated October 16.

In the written complaint to the Delhi CP, he wrote, “This is with reference to the theft and illegal retention of my three-year old pet dog named Henry (Rottweiler breed) by Ms. Mahua Moitra, M.P., Lok Sabha, Resident of 9-B, Telegraph Lane, New Delhi – 110001,” under the subject line — “Complaint against Ms. Mahua Moitra, M.P., for Theft and Illegal Retention of my pet dog named Henry.”

An emotional dog parent Dehadrai also wrote, “My bond with my dog Henry is that of a parent and a child. I have looked after him since he was 40 days old, and I understand his every need and concern.”

He further accused Moitra of hiding away his pet as a retaliation to his CBI complaint. “Ms. Moitra has deliberately kidnapped and hidden Henry away from me since 10.10.2023, with the intent to harass, and blackmail me in response to the CBI Complaint dated 14.10.2023, which I have filed against her,” he wrote.

He then requested the police to protect his life and liberty and also reunite him with his dog, Henry. “I would request you with folded hands and all humility that this dog Henry belongs with his rightful owner-parent. Time is of the essence, and I would beseech you to please reunite me with Henry at the earliest. Under such circumstances, I anticipate tremendous fear and threat to my life. I request you to please protect my life and liberty and help me get my dog Henry back,” he wrote in the letter.

Dehadrai also attached supporting documents, to prove his official purchase of the Rottweiler breed dog. These documents include a payment receipt, a litter’s registration certificate, and microchip details of the same.
