A woman thrashed a residential society security guard and hurled abuses at him for allegedly ill-treating stray dogs, with a video of the purported incident going viral on Sunday. The Agra police said they have taken cognisance of the video and registered a case against the woman who claims to be an animal rights activist. In the about 2.10-minute clip, the woman, who appears to be in her late twenties, is purportedly heard threatening the man that she will complain against him.
The man works as a security guard in the LIC officer colony under New Agra police station. He is heard saying in the video that he was an ex-armyman. He says he was trying to shoo stray dogs away from the colony. The Agra police has taken cognisance of the video and legal action has been initiated. A complaint was registered by security guard Akhilesh Singh working at the LIC officers' colony. The cops were trying to get the details of the woman who was seen beating up the guard in the viral video.
What did the woman say?
The woman has released a video introducing herself as animal rights activist Dimpi Mahendru. She claimed she has been working against cruelty on animals for the past 15-18 years. She added she got a call from the colony two-three days ago about alleged cruelty on dogs, but could not come as she was not in the town. She also alleged the guard had killed a dog because it had littered in front of the building.
"On Saturday also, I got a call about cruelty on dogs, and I arrived at the colony. The guard was seen beating dogs with a stick. I tried to stop him, but he began to beat me. I snatched his stick. He asked his friend to shoot a video of the incident. The guard was also mentally ill," she says in the video.
