A 28-year-old graduate from National Institute of Technology (NIT), Delhi, has been identified as the serial dog killer who last month was captured on Delhi Metro’s CCTV camera brutally stabbing and killing a puppy and three other dogs.
Identified as Nakul Mishra, he was arrested from Lucknow on April 16.
The video had gone viral last month, leading to a social media outcry and national outrage against brutality against animals.
According to the Police, the accused Nakul Mishra, has been on medication for prolonged depression.
He was sacked from his job, had a failed love affair and had lost his own pet dog recently when the incident took place.
According to a leading psychiatrist in India, Nakul’s behaviour was akin to that of a terrorist. he had said:
“This is not a behaviour related to a normal disorder like clinical depression, rather it is akin to the behaviour of a terrorist. This man, after losing his pet, saw killing of other animals as his manner of revenge.”
