Kapil Dev Moves Delhi High Court against Provisions of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act

The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act’s provisions that permit the extermination or destruction of any animal under the authority of any law, as well as the destruction of stray dogs in lethal chambers or by other methods that may be prescribed, have recently been challenged by the former Indian cricket captain Kapil Dev and his wife in a case filed in the Delhi High Court.

On Tuesday, a division bench made up of Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Sanjeev Narula gave the petitioners’ attorney time to record some decisions, and the subject was scheduled for hearing on October 13.

Through attorneys Shraddha Deshmukh, Nikhil Singhvi, Shikhar Kishore, Bilal Ikram, Parth Aggarwal, and Milind Raj Dixit, the high court has received a plea from actor Kapil Dev, his wife Romi Dev, and animal rights activist Anjali Gopalan.

The plea was entered in response to several cases of animal cruelty that revealed the “most brutal and cruel face of humanity” and the “utter effete” response from the legal system and law enforcement.
