A shocking news of canine cruelty has come to the fore. This time it is not from Kerala. Well known Indian-American hotelier Vikram Chatwal has been charged with criminal mischief for allegedly trying to set two dogs on fire. The 44-year-old turned himself in to the police early on Monday morning. He has been charged with criminal mischief, torturing and injuring an animal, reckless endangerment and arson, a New York Police Department official said. The dogs have suffered minor injuries, police said.

According to a report, the charges stem from an October 7 incident in which Chatwal allegedly got into an argument with a woman walking the dogs outside Chatwal’s home. Chatwal allegedly pulled out a lighter and aerosol can and used them to burn the two dogs, the report said.
