The Manickpur police have registered an offence against an unknown person for tying a dog with a rope and brutally beating it up. The animal activist, who rescued the dog, found the animal near Chulna lake, Vasai, on the night of September 12 and took him to an animal hospital in Thane. The dog is under treatment and is battling for life.

Textile merchant Mitesh Jain, who also works as an honorary animal welfare officer for the Animal Welfare Board of India, received a call that an injured dog has been found near Chulna lake, Vasai.
