New Delhi, Sep 15 (SocialNews.XYZ) In a shocking incident, a man allegedly raped a stray dog in the national Capital, a Delhi Police official said on Friday.
The complaint was lodged against the accused by an activist and a member of People for Animals (PFA) at Rajouri Garden police station in west Delhi.
According to the FIR, obtained by IANS, a man, a resident of Subhash Nagar, has been engaging in the sexual abuse of stray dogs for a considerable period.
"As an animal activist, I came across videos and images circulating on the social media, which prompted me to take action against this horrendous crime targeting defenceless animals.

"As a member of PFA, I am filing this complaint urgently. I have attached supporting images for the aforementioned complaint. I kindly request immediate action against the accused by registering a case under relevant sections of the IPC and the PCA Act," she further added in her complaint.
