An angry morning walker struck a dog on the head with an iron rod and then scooped up the creature by its tail and threw it away in a horrific act of cruelty. In Delhi's Paschim Vihar on Sunday, the entire episode was captured on film.

In addition to viciously beating the dog, the accused is seen in the video swinging the rod at people who rushed in to save the dog. Police say that around 9.27 am, PS Paschim Vihar East received a PCR call of a "quarrel." The event occurred while Dharamvir Dahiya went out for a morning walk in the Paschim Vihar neighbourhood, it was discovered during the investigation.

"A dog owned by a resident of A block Paschim Vihar started barking at Dharamvir. After that, he picked up the dog by its tail and threw it. Rakshit, the owner of the dog, came to its rescue it but Dahiya attacked the dog again. In the meantime, the dog bit Dharamvir. This led to a minor scuffle between Dahiya and Rakshit," said police.
