Case filed after video of two men torturing a dog inside a clinic goes viral

The Manpada police in Thane took cognizant of the situation and filed a case shortly after a video showing two employees of a veterinary clinic viciously attacking a dog became popular on social media. According to the police, they have both guys under suspicion of no cognizable offenses.

Police officials claim that on Tuesday morning, a video showing two pet clinic employees hitting and kicking a dog inside the clinic’s grounds went viral on social media.

A few hours after two veterinary clinic personnel were seen torturing a dog in a video that went viral on social media, the Manpada police in Thane looked into the matter and reported it. The two men are the subject of a non-cognizable offense report that the police claim they have filed.

“It appears that owners of the dog had gone out of station for a wedding and kept their dog at the clinic during which the incident took place,” stated animal enthusiast and NGO PAWS founder Nilesh Bhanage.

The video was apparently filmed by one of the two employees, who then uploaded it to their Snapchat accounts. “It was then taken up by an activist, and it went viral on social media,” Bhanage added.

Public Outrage

Numerous lawmakers, celebrities, and animal lovers denounced the two’s acts and demanded that the authorities take strong action against them. Aaditya Thackeray, the leader of the Shiv Sena, posted on Instagram, saying, “Just came across this video.” This man ought to be treated twice as well as he is with these helpless animals.

“I am in shock… this disgusting human needs to be punished,” wrote Malaika Arora on social media. How in the world does such violence escape punishment? It is necessary to punish both this man and the government. Please take action; this murderous monster is laughing and hurting the defenseless puppy for his own pathetic amusement.

A Thane Municipal Corporation veterinary official reported the incident to the police later that day.

The veterinary officer told police, “After watching the video, I checked and found out that it originated from Vetic Pet Clinic at Manpada in Thane. My coworkers and I then went to the location at 1pm.”

Following their identification, the two clinic employees—Mayur Michael Aadhav, 19, and Prashant Sanjay Gaikwad, 20—were brought to the police station. Afterward, the Manpada police station reported a non-cognizable offense under section 11 (1) of the Animal Cruelty Act.

The officials stated that the pet clinic’s owners were forced to close on Tuesday due to a group of political activists and animal lovers staging a demonstration outside the facility.

Animal Cruelty Awareness

Since multiple instances of animal mistreatment were brought to light in the media recently, animal cruelty in India has gained attention. More stringent amendments to the 1960 Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act are now required. Social media users who are speaking out for animals have started a movement and given it a hashtag.

There are several reasons why animal cruelty occurs in India. While some people do it for enjoyment, others do it out of ignorance or poverty. People may hurt animals because they believe they are not as precious as people, according to psychologist Dr. Tannu Saini.
