A man has been booked for allegedly killing his pet dog by stamping on it out of rage following a property dispute with his sister, police said here on Saturday.
The incident occurred on Friday.
According to police, Naga Raj and Rama Devi, who were staying in the same house, were engaged in heated arguments for the past one week over the matter.
"My brothers wife was holding the dog by its neck and my brother stamped the animal...My brother threatens to kill me and my mother also," Rama Devi said in her complaint.
She alleged that her brother was also trying to get rid of another pet dog.
The carcass has been sent for autopsy and case filed against Naga Raj under Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, police said.
A police official said as of now only Naga Raj has been booked and police are verifying if his wife took part in the dog's killing.
