Noida: In a spine chilling news, a video clip has surfaced on Saturday highlighting a man choking a mongrel to death by pressing down on the animal's neck with his foot near a marketplace in Noida. All the while, the man had a smile on his face.


According to a report in a leading agency, his wavering gait suggests he was drunk. The man is believed to be in his mid-40s and was wearing a traffic marshal's uniform. This happened on Friday night near Sadarpur Bazar in Sector 45.


Police have launched a hunt for this man after a video clip of this cold-blooded cruelty, purportedly shot by a bystander, was widely shared on messaging platforms and social media. The authenticity of the video clip is also being ascertained.

Bystanders appealed to the man several time to remove his foot but he did not budge. Meanwhile, no one rescued the dog either. Someone shot the video and shared it. SP (traffic) Anil Kumar Jha ordered an investigation into the man's identify. Animal rights' organisation People for Animals filed a complaint with Noida Police. The rights group said it will also complain to Union minister Maneka Gandhi.

Ajay Kumar Singh, SHO, Sector 39 police station, said police were trying to establish the authenticity of the video. "We will identify and arrest the accused if the video is found to be genuine," he said.
