Khanna had received a complaint from Maneka Gandhi’s People for Animals (PFA) in May alleging cruelty to the dogs. Khanna and Tandon, with the help of Lonikand police station officials rescued the 12 dogs from a man’s house in Lonikand. The dogs were found in very serious condition. They have been handed over to the District Animal Husbandry department.
Meanwhile, these dogs were medically examined. The report showed that there were injury marks on their skin. It turned out that they were being treated cruelly.
The owner of the dogs had applied to the court for possession of the dogs.  However, the court refused to give possession. The court ordered the owner to pay for the care and transportation of these dogs at the rate of Rs 260 per day for one year.
Khanna said that for breeding dogs, permission of the government department is mandatory. So is for taking care. However, the owner doesn’t have either.
