Sagar (Madhya Pradesh), Aug 21: A pet dog tried to rescue its owner when attempts were being made to allegedly gang rape a girl in Sagar district of Madhya Pradesh.
The incident took place in Motinagar area on August 19 when a 14-year-old girl was allegedly abducted from outside her house by two men, Reshu Ahirwar and Puneet Ahirwar, who lived in the neighbourhood and took her to a secluded place to allegedly rape her.
When the girl was allegedly being assaulted sexually by one of the perpetrators, she shouted for help. Alarmed by her screams, the dog came rushing to her and pounced on the accused and his accomplice.
The pet dog did everything possible, biting, scratching with paws, to save the girl.
