Delhi: Man booked for killing wife’s German Shepherd

New Delhi: After the death of three-year-old Tyson, a German Shepherd, due to poisoning at a house in Greater Kailash-II in South Delhi on October 20, its owner, a famous interior designer, has filed a police complaint alleging that her estranged husband had poisoned her pet.

On the woman’s complaint, an FIR has been filed at the Chittaranjan Park police station against her husband. No arrests have been made in the case so far, the police said.


The interior designer, who is having a dispute with her husband, in her complaint said that she found Tyson very weak on the morning of October 20. She immediately took it to a veterinarian in Greater Kailash Part-II. The doctor referred the dog to the Max Veterinary Hospital in GK-I, where it died around 2 pm. The designer alleged that the dog was poisoned. At her insistence, an autopsy was performed at the Animal Care Centre, Rajouri Garden, which confirmed that the dog had been poisoned.

Apprehends that she too may be killed

The designer told the police that her husband and two others had poisoned the dog. She said that her husband had, in the past, threatened to kill the dog. She also said that she fears that like Tyson, she too may be murdered. On her complaint, the police have booked her husband under section 429 of the IPC.
