In yet another case of cruelty against Indian dogs, a dog was mowed down by a truck driver on Mira Road  in Mumbai. TV actress Natasha Sinha got the shock of her life when she saw the mangled body of the slain dog under the rear wheels of the truck and the legs stuck on the front wheels of the truck. Natasha immediately contacted animal activist Salim Charania and approached the police to file the complaint against the truck driver.

The trailer truck was found at Mangal Nagar and Natasha assumes that the dog was mauled while he / she was sleeping and hence could not defend itself. Natasha is a well known animal welfare activist and animal lover who also looks after the stray dogs in her locality. The police station at Mira Road has registered a case against the truck driver under Section 428 (Mischief by killing or maiming an animal), Section 279 (Rash driving) of the Indian Penal Code and several relevant sections of the Prevention of Animal Cruelty Act.
