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. We have directed our officers to resolve the issue. Having said that, the cattle owners to need to earn their livelihood,” the police personnel was quoted as saying.

Dismissing claims of ‘inaction’ by law enforcement, the Indore police informed that a case was registered on March 9 against one Sobha Ram. As per Indore police, the First Information Report (FIR) was lodged on the basis of her complaint under Sections 112, <> 323, 506 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The guard had brought pet supplies for the woman on multiple occasions but was barred from doing so by his employers. She then threatened to implicate him in a false case,” the cop revealed.
