A lady in Pakistan has sued a veterinary specialist for Rs. 2.5 crore, blaming him for negligence that led to the death of her two-month-old cat.
Cat proprietor Sundus Hoorain, who is a legal advisor, said she took her cat for a routine check-up to Dr Faisal Khan’s center in Islamabad.
“My cat was admitted to the hospital and I was asked to return the following day,” Ms Hoorain said.
The same evening, when she lifted her cat up from the clinic and returned home, the cat fell sick. She rushed her cat to another specialist where it passed on, Dawn reported.
“Dr Rana told me my cat had been kept at a lower temperature, not suitable for mammals. This is why my cat died,” the feline proprietor said.
A post-mortem report submitted in the local court said the reason for the cat’s passing was its exposure to extreme cold, drying out and starvation.
The complainant blamed Dr Khan and one of his staff individuals from carelessness, and requested 25 million Pakistani rupees ($238,492) in fine.
Ms Hoorain has additionally looked for prison term for all the denounced. She made a supplication to the veterinary board to introduce CCTV cameras in these centers to screen how creatures are dealt with.
The denounced have been requested that present an answer.
