Kolkata: Irritated by barking dog, neighbour attacks pet’s owner with rod

Kolkata: Irritated by the constant barking of his neighbour’s pet dog, a man barged into the latter’s house and attacked him with a rod after trying to strangulate him in the city’s posh Ballygunge Place area, police said today.

Abhijit Sen was arrested and booked under IPC Section 307 (attempt to murder) on the charge of attacking Mukund Khaitan.

Police said Sen has been complaining to Khaitan about the barking for quite some time but last night he lost his cool.

According to the police complaint lodged by Khaitan, the accused tried to strangulate him first and then attacked him with a rod that he had taken with him.

When produced before a local court, Sen was remanded in one-day police custody. Mukund was undergoing treatment at a local hospital.
