Sick Indian students throw dog to death from roof terrace

“People speak sometimes about the ‘bestial’ cruelty of man, but that is terribly unjust and offensive to beasts, no animal could ever be so cruel as a man, so artfully, so artistically cruel,” Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky had once said.
The video of a man from Chennai throwing a dog from a rooftop, which came up on social media on Monday, just shows the pride which some people take in inflicting cruelty on animals. What makes matters worse is the pathetic condition of the laws made to protect animal rights in India.
The man in the clip, identified as Gautman Sudarshan, a medical student at Kundrathur in Kancheepuram district, nonchalantly looks into the camera before the video switches to a slow-motion shot of the helpless animal being flung off the roof and falling to the ground with a thud. The dog did not survive the impact.
“We got information from different students who recognized the student from the video that went viral. It was because of this information that we could lead the police to the right college,” said Shravan Krishnan, an animal welfare activist who led the police to the college.
The incident took place about two weeks ago, students said.
