Srinagar continues to burn even as Nero plays his flute: Dogs being poisoned in Kashmir and authorities continue to deny it

Posted on | June 3, 2012 | 1 Comment

This is a series of posts on Kashmir. As with the other writing on ‘The Voice of Stray Dogs’, unless otherwise specified the writing expresses the opinion of  The Voice of Stray Dogs, and not necessarily that of VoSD Board members since individual comment/ contribution and consent is neither sought nor received.

These pictures are from yesterday from downtown Srinagar where a dog investigates its poisoned brother, and walks away. The name of the photographer is being withheld on request. Even as AWBI kept tom-toming about the ABC MOU with SMC and SKUAST it is confirmed now that dogs are being killed on the streets of Srinagar. Earlier pictures had shown bodies of dead dogs loaded in an SMC truck.

Yesterday in an alarming newspaper report we got to know that the Srinagar High Court had ‘…on Friday directed the state Chief Secretary, Madhav Lal  to appoint an expert committee to explore possibilities other than dog sterilization which could be implemented to get rid of the dog menace..” More alarming has been the information that no lawyer from AWBI was present in the court hearing when this order was given!

    Is there/was there a single Nero? Easier to pinpoint one, but I’d say there have been / are many Neros, if at all. Complicated and sad situation all in all.
