RAISING A VOICE AGAINST PUPPY MURDERS IN KOLKATA,INDIA

There was supposed to be a food post, a branded content, which was supposed to go Live last night. But there is this post, which had to be addressed. My family has been working in animal rescue in India, as far as I can remember. My brother- Riddhiman Chatterjee(Riddy), continues the work to the best of his abilities. He even runs a self-funded animal shelter(AALO), which currently houses 15 abandoned dogs. Right now he has been assaulted and attacked, and hospitalized with a head injury and bodily harm, for raising a voice against the merciless murder of 16 puppies, in Kolkata.

I am writing this post to appeal to Animal Rights Activists and Animal Lovers across the world, to raise a voice together, for justice against those murdered puppies. People who torture and kill animals will not flinch an eyelid to torture and kill human beings, without flinching an eyelid. The problem is the archaic laws in India against murdering animals. There is a mere fine of Rs. 50(less than $1) for murdering/killing an animal. With such laws, perpetrators get away with violence.
In case you missed the news, 16 puppies were bludgeoned to death, by two nursing students from a premier medical college - NRS Medical College and Hospital. Soma Burman and Moutusi Mondal lured the puppies and their mother from different parts of the hospital with treats(cookies/biscuits) to an enclosed area, where they bludgeoned them to a merciless death on January 13th, 2018. The nursing students wore surgical gloves and beat the puppies to death with a rod. The dead bodies of the animals were found in plastic bags in the hospital dumpster. They were recorded by some other students as they continued their inhumane act. A security guard at the hospital identified the perpetrators from the video, after which they were arrested by the police on January 15t,h 2018.

My Brother - Riddhiman and many many more animal lovers and animal activists in Kolkata have been protesting for justice for this massacre, at the hospital gates, to taking out peace marches, to name a few.
 

Ms. Maneka Gandhi, Union Minister for Women and Child Development, is a prominent voice in animals rights, in India. She is the Chairperson of the nonprofit known as People for Animals(PFA). She had demanded immediate action after the accused nursing students had been let off by the police.
The culprits were let off by the police on bail, and have been re-joined, classes. The hospital administration had assured that the nursing students(murderers) would not be allowed to re-join classes, till the police investigation was going on. When they rejoined classes, my brother and other activists, in Kolkata, including local film personalities, sat in a silent protest in front of the Health Department Office, in Kolkata on January 22nd, 2018. They were attacked by Cops, yes Police from Bidnannagr Electronic Complex Police Station and assaulted and attacked, and beaten black and blue. The police even tried their best to erase video and photo evidence from the phones of the activists.

My brother and his fellow campaigners, including local film celebrities, have been hospitalized following the attack. This is the price they paid for raising their voice against such a case of animal abuse. 

We, animal lovers across the world, need to raise our voices so that these puppies get justice.
