Eight boys held for burning alive three puppies at a graveyard in Musheerabad area here were sent to Juvenile home on Thursday.  All of them, aged between 10 and 17, were produced before a Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) which remanded them in judicial custody.
The boys tied the legs of the puppies and threw them into a pyre they had lit at a graveyard last Saturday. The incident came to light on Tuesday. 
Following a complaint by animal rights activists, a case was registered on Tuesday under IPC Section 429 (mischief by killing or

maiming cattle, etc) and relevant sections of Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Act in connection with the incident.  The minors and their parents were summoned to Musheerabad Police Station where they were initially counseled.
N G Jayasimha, managing director of Humane Society International India, said in a statement: “We are thankful to the Musheerabad police for the swift action taken in this case. We hope that the Juvenile Justice Board takes swift and stern action for this inexplicable violence against defenceless puppies.”
