Kanpur, July 3

In a heart-rending incident, a dog jumped to death from the fourth floor of a building after her master passed away.

The incident took place at Barra locality here on Wednesday evening.

Anita Raj Singh, a doctor, had developed a kidney ailment and was unwell for the past few months. She was undergoing treatment at a city hospital, where she breathed her last on Wednesday.

According to her son, Tejas, her body was brought home from the hospital and their dog, Jaya, started barking and wailing. The dog then went upstairs and jumped off the fourth floor.

"We rushed her to a veterinary hospital, but she was declared brought dead. Her backbone had fractured," Tejas said.

He said the dog was depressed ever since his mother was admitted to hospital and had almost stopped eating.

The family buried the dog near their house soon after Anita Raj Singh's cremation on Thursday.

Tejas said his mother had found the dog in a pitiable condition 12 years ago. "Jaya was infested with maggots and my mother brought her home. She treated the dog and Jaya soon became a member of the family," he said. IANS
