Horse dies in Bengaluru, Tamil Nadu woman cries foul | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Alleging that her equestrian horse was poisoned to death at a stable in Bengaluru, an entrepreneur from Tamil Nadu on Tuesday approached Kothanur police here with a complaint against the owner of the facility.
The complainant, Sureka Paval, 39, from Tiruppur city of Tamil Nadu had sent two of her horses, Frenchman and Vijay’s Champ, to United Riders Barn on Hennur-Bagalur Main Road managed by one Nitin Gupta, on September 1, 2021 for equestrian training for her 13-year-old son.
Nitin Gupta, however, told TOI that the death of the horse was unfortunate. “It was a case of colic that caused indigestion, ultimately resulting in its death. We were training the woman’s son with the horse and things were looking good and they were competition-ready. But unfortunately the horse died; such incidents happen in sport at times,” he said, adding that the postmortem report was handed over to the animal’s owner.
“Late October 22 evening, I received a call from one of caretakers, Kiran, that my Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI)-approved horse Frenchman was unwell. He then called again the next morning to inform me that the horse was fine. A few hours later he called to inform me that the 12-year-old animal had died,” Sureka said.
The woman said a postmortem of the horse was carried out by veterinarian, Sanjay, under the supervision of her local representative and the animal was buried. “My son and I reached late on October 23 and demanded an explanation from Nitin Gupta about the death. But what I encountered was three drunken youths, who reached the barn and forced me out, demanding that I take with me my second horse,” Sureka said.
She has complained that her horse had been injected with an unknown substance, which could be a case of poisoning the animal. An FIR was registered against Gupta under Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 and a police probe is under way.
The woman claimed that a proper postmortem report has not been provided to her till date.
