Verma along with his colleagues rushed to the spot and took the dog to the veterinary hospital but the vet declared it dead.
The autopsy report showed multiple haemorrhages and fractures.
Puranpur Kotwali police station SHO, Ashok Pal said that the accused was booked under IPC section 428 (committing mischief by killing, poisoning or maiming any animal).
He is yet to be arrested, the SHO added.
