Worli, Mumbai is home to numerous skyscrapers and tall buildings in general. However, there are still areas in this part of Mumbai where the civil code of housing is left aside to construct buildings as close as just a mere few inches apart.
During the strict containment patrolling of the area, the police heard loud and repeat whining and barking coming from one of the blocks. On investigation, they found a small dog stuck between a shop and a residential building.
However not much was visible or notable except the fact that the puppy was alive and stuck. The gap was extremely narrow, the police had to either leave the puppy there and let it die or try something to bring it out alive.
