Mr Tahir Abbas Supra, Additional Sessions Judge, Islamabad rejected a petition of Prince Yasir Arafat seeking registration of a case against a local veterinarian, Dr Faisal Khan, for allegedly killing his pet dog. According to Mr Arafat, the pet dog died due to the doctor’s negligence.
“The dog had been taken in for an ultrasound and routine checkup when the veterinarian administered an antibiotic drip that killed the dog,” stated the petition. The petitioner said that the police were not registering a case and requested the court to order the registration of a case.
During today’s hearing, the Judge summoned the investigating officer and the veterinary surgeon, Dr Faisal Khan, before the court. After the hearing, the judge rejected the citizen. The vet claimed that Mr Yasir Arafat was demanding money from him.
