As per a Geo TV report, a dog was sentenced to death in the Punjab province of Pakistan for biting a child. Assistant Commissioner Raja Saleem in Bhakkar’s Kalor vicinity in Punjab province pronounced the extreme sentence on “humanitarian ground”.
Assistant Commissioner Saleem ruled “The dog injured the child hence it should be killed”. He also instructed an official to check the registration of the dog. A case is also in progress in civil court against the dog’s owner.
Meanwhile, the dog owner Jamil has filed an appeal with the Additional Deputy Commissioner against the bizarre punishment.
“The affected child’s family registered a case against my dog, following which it completed a one-week prison sentence. Any further punishment for it would be unfair,”
Jamil also said that he will knock the door of every legal option to save his pet dog.
In a country where the judicial system is crippled and almost ineffective to punish terrorists, we are amazed to see the efficiency of law in punishing a dog.
