The BJP's Kerala unit has claimed that dogs are being hunted down in the northern areas of the state by an "extremist group" as part of their "training programme" and lambasted the government for not taking the matter seriously.
"The government has not taken seriously increasing number of cases of dogs killed at night as part of a training programme by a militant outfit... It is not the work of anti-social elements or an isolated incident," BJP state general secretary K Surendran told reporters here. Surendran alleged that 40 dogs had been attacked with blades in three months.
DGP K S Balasubramanian said the reports were being investigated. "A comphrehensive probe is being carried out and details cannot be disclosed now," he said.
