Indore Police debunks allegations made by ‘Sakshi Sharma’

On Monday, India’s largest animal welfare organisation People for Animals shared a video of Indore police after a woman allegedly named Sakshi Sharma sought help from the public due to ‘police inaction’ over her repeated complaints. “Her primary concern was that cattle owners would graze their animals in the area, thereby causing inconvenience to her dogs.
