I congratulate Naresh Kadyan for this action but question mark on the Delhi Police & Wild Life Department along with the Animal Welfare Board of India working. You see the legal terms of the offenses committed under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, which is non-cognizable except three sub-sections of 11 & 12, where as the punishment is fifty rupees in first offense - in second offense fine or three months imprisonment / both. COGNIZABLE means that local Police can not arrest any accused with out court arrest warrant, no doubt Delhi Police made out DP Act, 1978 but the legality of offenses is the same, NO FIR only KALENDRA. There is a SPCA here in Delhi with zero % activities. As per section 96-97 of the Cattle Transport Rules, 1978 amended in 2001 under section 38 of the PCA Act, 1960 - the permit from the Chairman, AWBI is compulsory before animal transportation, where as offenses under section 38 are the NON-COGNIZABLE in legal terms then what is the use of the animal related laws here in India, so we demands the review / amendments in the existed laws for animals along with the rules for ANIMAL BREEDERS / PET SHOPS / FISH AQUARIUMS with out any further delay, if central or state Govt. are serious about animal rights & their welfare, I rate the integrity of both Govt.'s doubtful while dealing the subject.
