"We have registered a case in this connection under relevant provisions of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act and IPC on complaint of an NGO. The accused guard of Delhi Technical University(DTU) is absconding," said MN Tiwari, DCP Rohini.

The incident came to the fore when a disturbing video of the incident went viral on Thursday. Ayesha Christina of NGO Neighbourhood Woof lodged the police complaint in the incident and posted the video which showed the guard hitting the dog's head with a stick.

A senior DTU official said an enquiry has been set up but the accused is yet to be identified. "We have set up an inquiry committee to look into the issue. The guard has not been identified yet. However, the particular dog has been found difficult to control in past as well.

It has harmed 10-12 students earlier too," the official said. The incident led to protest in the university with students demanding action against the guard. Christina posted a long post on Facebook saying "right now, we will not compromise and are united on two points: the guard be handed over to police custody and that the person/ authority who instructed the guard be caught and booked as well."
