Hyderabad: “We care not just for you but also for your loved ones,” said a police officer in a social media post which won many hearts in the city on Tuesday.
Deputy commissioner of police M. Ramesh took to Twitter to share details of the case of a 19-month old beagle that was traced by detective inspector Lakshman after two weeks of sustained effort. The beagle was handed back to his family.
According to East Zone police officials, the beagle, Brownie, went missing on the intervening night of May 22 and 23. Despite all efforts, Brownie’s owner Vinod Kumar, manager at an ice-cream store in Koti, failed to find him. He filed a missing complaint with the Sultan Bazaar police.
Based on the complaint, the police registered a case of theft. From the available CCTV footage, the police ascertained that three students had picked up Brownie from the road and taken him back with them.
The police then formed a nine-member team to trace Brownie. Inspector Laxman and sub-inspector Naresh supervised the trace operation.
Based on the CCTV footage, the trio was nabbed 19 days into the investigation.
“Thanks to the police, we have finally reunited with our beloved Brownie. There was not a day when we didn't search for him. Now that he's back, we definitely plan to celebrate his return,” Vinod Kumar said.
This is the second time the police have successfully traced a missing dog. Back in 2017, a pet called Tyson, who had been kidnapped from Red hills, was traced and returned to his family....
