However, after five days the dogs who were reportedly healthy refused to consume food and water.

In his FIR, Vardhanamma alleged that due to deteriorating health, he shifted the dogs to a private veterinary clinic for treatment. “But one of them died during treatment while the other is in a critical condition. This is the result of cruelty meted out to the animals by the GHMC,” Vardhanamma stated.

The Panjagutta police have registered a case. Further investigations are on.
