Animal welfare activists have filed a police complaint against an MBBS student who was seen throwing a dog from the terrace of a building, on a video that was taken by his friend and went viral on social media.
One activist, Antony Clement Rubin, who lodged the complaint said they were shocked when they saw the barbaric act, and they want the perpetrators to be punished by law.
The Chennai police arrested the student, Gowtham Sudarshan, who is seen looking into the camera as he lifts the dog by its skin and drops it off the parapet wall. His friend Ashish Pal has also been named for abetting the crime.
Luckily the dog survived with several fractures.
