Bengaluru: Karnataka Police on Thursday arrested a dog owner for targeting a woman who filed a complaint against him after she was bitten by his pet canine.
The accused identified as Nanjunda Babu had torched a bike and scooter belonging to the complainant Pushpa’s family.
The incident took place on June 13 within the limits of Kothanur police station on the outskirts of Bengaluru.

The accused had threatened consequences if a complaint was lodged in connection to the incident.
Babu’s family had assured the victim that they would pay for all the medical treatment until she was fully recovered.
But when they failed to do so and failed to fulfil their promises, the victim filed her complaint.

Enraged by this, the accused allegedly torched the bike belonging to the victim’s son and her scooter on Tuesday.
