The case of missing “Kalu” that had befuddled the entire Uttar Pradesh police has finally been solved. After the 2014, ‘missing buffaloes of Azam Khan’ case, this was another “high-level” case which was promptly solved by the state police within 24 hours. Kalu, the missing black labrador of former union minister and Agra MP Ram Shankar Katheria was found in Delhi on Saturday morning.
Interestingly, the dog was found by a few residents who identified him from Whatsapp pictures which were promptly circulated by the police. The matter took a very serious turn when another similar dog was by Agra police and confusion prevailed over the ‘real Kalu.’ As it turns out that the dog recovered from Agra was not Kalu but a resembling dog named “Bhoora.”

“Kalu might have been taken away by someone and left in Delhi. Bhoora, the other dog at my house in Agra, was very sad and so was my wife Mridula. With the recovery of the dog, we are relieved and happy,” said Katheria.
As they say, every dog has its day, this time it was “Kalu” who was “abducted” by unidentified men from the former minister’s house on Friday.

The matter came to fore Friday morning when Katheria’s wife Mridula accompanied by BJP Braj region general secretary Anil Chaudhary and party workers reached the office of Superintendent of Police, Agra, to lodge a complaint.
‘Our Kalu is a black Labrador, a rare and expensive breed. More than that, Kalu is more like a part of the family than a pet,” Mridula said and also added, “If UP Police can find Azam Khan’s buffalos, then why not my dog?” she asked.
Earlier in 2014, seven buffaloes were robbed from Uttar Pradesh minister Azam Khan’s home, which had scores of policemen on their toes over the weekend and three policemen were suspended in the case for ‘dereliction of duty.’ Let’s hope that UP police has learnt a lesson or two and show the same amount of dedication in searching for criminals even as the Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav claims ‘lack of policemen’ as a reason for failed state of law and order in the state.
