As per ABN Telugu news, someone approached Raidurgum Police Station to lodge complaint about usage of dog meat in the Shah Ghouse Hotel and Restaurant. Police instead asked him approach food inspectors. The agitated person allegedly started posting the messages on WhatsApp and social media sites, and soon it created a buzz.

As the rumours spread wide and fast, Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) officials had to step in. GHMC did serve a notice to the restaurant, but for not using meat procured from certified slaughter houses. The officials also acknowledged that all the three branches of the restaurant were inspected due to rumours.

As reported by Deccan Chronicle, Cyberabad police has not registered any case against the hotel. The police has said that the rumours about dog meat were false and spread to defame the hotel.

However some local news channels and blogs not only reported that Shah Ghouse was using dog meat, but they also claimed that the police had arrested the hotel owner.

The hotel management has filed a complaint with the Cyberabad Police to act against two TV channels for telecasting fake news against them.
