In yet another act of animal cruelty, three boys were arrested for burning alive three puppies in Hyderabad. According to a news report on CNN News18, the boys are minors.
A video of the dastardly act showed one of the boys carrying the puppies, which appeared to be tied together, in one hand. The boys then made a bonfire and put the puppies on the fire.
In one shot, as one of the puppies tries to escape, one of the boys uses a long stick to push it back on to the fire. More details about the incident and arrest are awaited.
This incident comes barely weeks after two medical students were arrested for throwing a puppy off a building and making a video of the act. Gowtham Sudarshan and Ashish Paul, final year MBBS students at a medical college in Chennai were charged under the Prevention of Cruelty Act, 1960.
