Talking to us Pooja Singh said, "The incident took place two days back at the residence complex I stay in Mira road. I was shocked to hear what was done to the 45-day-old puppy. Now, an official police complaint has been filed and Police have already reached here to investigate. Also, the NGO team and an animal lover teams are here. We together have a meeting going on. Unfortunately, the CCTV footage is not very clear due to rains so the culprit can't be seen. But I believe in all the people present here who are trying their best to find the person behind."

Sharing what made her raise her voice against the unfortunate incident, Pooja said, "I am an animal lover and even if I am not but this crime is so big that I can't keep myself calm and not raise my voice against it. Being an actor, I have to be more responsible as we have certain people following us. Before posting the video, I just spoke to a few residents here to understand what exactly had happened but I didn't consult or take any permission before posting the video on social media as I knew what I am doing is right. Ever since I have posted about it, a lot of my friends have also come out in my support and spreading the news. Through this, I am not trying to defame anybody but to spread the message. So that whoever is behind this should know that you just can't be so cruel to the innocent animals."
"The last incident which happened in Lower Parel would have got buried if social media pressure would have not been there. I am hoping for the same here," added Pooja.
Pooja feels that the law should get even stricter with such culprits. She elaborated, "Cutting a small puppy into two pieces, imagine how cruel it was. In current times when we are seeing people losing their loved ones due to corona and if still, we are not learning a lesson on how lives are important what can be said. Just to prove that you can't feed animals on-premises you drop down to this level. There are laws for animals but I feel it's not being imposed and hence people are not taking this thing seriously. I just hope more strict laws should be introduced and imposed to stop such insane acts."
