Chennai, Aug 31: Finally justice is served for the gruesome act against animals which were generally ignored as their blood’s colour do not match our’s or they don’t feel the pain that we feel.
Setting aside all the inequalities a committee formed by the Tamil Nadu Dr. M.G.R. Medical University ordered to impose a fine of Rs 2 lakh on each of two final year medical students, who threw a dog off the rooftop of a three-storeyed building and filmed the cruel incident.
According to the committee’s recommendation, the two students — Gowtham Sudarshan and Ashish Paul — of the Madha Medical College, should pay a fine of Rs 2 lakh each to the Animal Welfare Board.
The committee was formed as per the Madras High Court’s orders.
Last month, the video of the two students — one throwing the dog down from the rooftop of a building and the other filming the gruesome act — went viral and drew a lot of attention all around on social media.
Following the incident, Animal welfare activists lodged a police complaint and the two students were later arrested but they were released on bail immediately.
The activists then knocked the court for compensation for the dog that suffered a leg fracture.
University Vice Chancellor S. Geethalakshmi and Dean of Students S.V. Senthilnathan on Tuesday signed the penalty order as recommended by the committee.
