Two groups in Manipur have announced a reward of Rs 60,000 for information on two dog killers in Thoubal district.

The Manipur Dog Lovers’ Club and Yening Animal Foundation have announced the bounty for information on two persons who had killed a dog in Thoubal district on Sunday, TOI reported.

The club launched a campaign in the district on Tuesday, seeking justice for the animal.

“Two bike-borne men killed the dog, Mylo, at Wangjing Lamding Cherapura and took away its carcass. The dog belonged to a local resident, Longjam Anandkumar,” said a statement issued by the groups.

If needed, the members would submit a memorandum to the government seeking justice for the dog and also urge it to check cruelty against animals, added the statement.

In September, Manipur police rescued 48 dogs, when they were being transported in a mini-truck, in Kakching district.

The driver and helper were arrested under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960.
