Noida Vlogger Booked By Uttarakhand Police; Took Pet Dog To Kedarnath Shrine

Rohit Tyagi
Rohit Tyagi, a Noida resident and vlogger, was booked for hurting religious sentiments and was arrested after a First Information Report was filed against him. What prompted a case against him? He took his pet husky Nawab to the Kedarnath shrine in Uttarakhand. After being booked for his act, Tyagi stated on May 22, that his pet dog Nawab had accompanied him across the country and that many had been amazed to see him at the holy shrine.

The event came to light after a video of Rohit, at the temple with the husky, Nawab, went viral on social media. The vlogger’s pet, Nawab, was seen touching the statue of Nandi in the temple’s outer circle with his paws in a now-deleted video. “Hey everyone, I’m Nawab (Dog) and I’m 4.5 years old now. I can proudly say that as much as I have travelled in 4 years, a person at the age of 70 would not be able to travel. And all of this happened because my parents took me everywhere. That’s why I have a request from all your pet parents,” they captioned the video.

The Badrinath-Kedarnath Temple Committee President, Ajendra Ajay took notice after the video of Tyagi with his dog went viral. Later, the temple committee filed a complaint with the Kedarnath police station outpost, requesting legal action against the guy to prevent such “unwanted” instances.

“People cannot be so bitter that they don’t spare a creature who can’t even defend itself,” he responded on the FIR. Meanwhile, Tyagi also told ANI that the four-and-a-half-year-old Nawab has previously visited numerous temples.

The vlogger also said that his pet was thrilled to be among so many people during his trip to the holy shrine. He claimed, “Nawab is said to have never seen anything like this in his travels.” In response to a question about why he brought a dog to the shrine, Tyagi explained that Nawab is his “kid,” and that families do not leave their children at home when going on vacation.
