The UP Police, which successfully recovered missing buffaloes of senior state minister Azam Khan, have now got another important task at hand with one more “high-profile” animal going missing. This time it’s the pet dog of former union minister and Agra MP Ram Shankar Katheria, which his family claims, has been “abducted”.

The matter came to fore Friday morning when Katheria’s wife Mridula accompanied by BJP Braj region general secretary Anil Chaudhary and party workers reached the office of Superintendent of Police (CITy), Agra, to lodge a complaint claiming that the pet black labrador was “abducted by unidentified men from the former minister’s house” three days ago.

‘Our Kalu is a black labrador —- a rare and expensive breed. More than that, Kalu is more like a part of the family than a pet,” Mridula told The Indian Express after handing over her complaint to SP, City, Sushil Ghule.

“If UP Police can find Azam Khan’s buffalos, then why not my dog?” she asked.

A missing report about the dog was later registered at Hari Parvat police station.

Katheria, a professor of Hindi at Agra University, has been allotted accommodation on the campus where he resides with his family.
