Pune: In a bizarre incident, a man who worked with the food delivery app Zomato walked off with the pet beagle dog of a Pune-based family on Monday.
Vandana Shah, a resident of Karve Road, took to Twitter to post about the horrific episode, which she said took place on Monday afternoon.

According to CCTV footage, the dog ‘Dottu’ was last seen playing inside the premises of her home-cum-factory complex. When Dottu remained untraceable for several hours, Shah began searching for it in the neighborhood and found out from a local eatery that a delivery man who worked there was seen carrying the dog.
According to news agency ANI, Shah also got hold of a picture of Dottu with a man, who turned out to be the Zomato food delivery guy, identified as Tushar.
"Tushar confessed to having picked up Duttu but when we asked him to return the dog he started making up excuses and said that he had sent him to his village," Vandana was quoted as saying by ANI.
A distraught Vandana then approached the police and contacted workers at Zomato, who promised to look into the matter.

However, Shah claimed that while the police assured them help, they refused to register a complaint.
