Kukatpally couple files police complain against apartment association for banning pets

Hyderabad: A couple residing in the gated community of Bhagya Nagar Colony in Kukatpally filed a police complaint at the KPHB police station against the president of the Residents Association after he threatened the couple for keeping a pet dog in their apartment.

"On Good Friday night, while we were taking the pet for the walk in the night, the president came up to us and started yelling for having a pet dog. He asked us to leave the apartment," said the owner of the pet.

In a video recording of the argument, the president was seen threatening the couple. The president also said that he was not going to allow the couple to stay in their flat and would lock them up from outside if they continue to stay there.


After their marriage, the couple moved into the flat in December 2020 which was owned by the parents of the wife since 1998. They claimed that they had the pet ever since they moved in but the president has never noticed it.

"After the fight, we complained to the police. They shared their patrolling van number and asked to call them if something happened. My wife is unable to sleep at night from shock. As of now, we are not staying in the apartment," said the owner.

The couple also mentioned that the president doesn't want to negotiate the issue in a civil manner and had informed the couple that the resident association will buy the flat.

"We have trained our pet properly and had also vaccinated it so that it won't harm another person. We know how to live in a society as we mingle with others from various backgrounds. So far, we never received any complaint regarding our pet," said the couple.

The couple has also sent a legal notice to the president of the gated community and asked him to apologise for the incident.
