Most people nowadays have no idea in which direction they are heading. As a race, we have grown to become apathetic to torture and murder whether it be a person or an animal. A shocking incident has come to light from Vellore where some students allegedly caught a female monkey and tortured and killed her. The description of this terrible act was posted on social media by Shravan Krishnan.
Here is what Shravan posted:
“One of the most shocking and heart-wrenching cases I have ever done. Four medical students from Christian Medical College, Vellore had a caught a female monkey which entered their rooms.
They tied her hands and started abusing and torturing her by beating her with sticks and belts, broke her legs, jaws and finally put a rod up her anus and killed her. The monkey was buried behind the hostel mess by the college sweepers. The incident happened on the 19th of Nov Saturday 12 30 PM. The students inside the colleges informed Meet Ashar from Bombay, and he informed our team. Dinesh Baba Nishanth Nichu Antony Rubin and we left from Chennai and reached Vellore. We have filed a FIR against these students and cases were booked under IPC 429 and Wildlife protection act of 1972. The monkey’s body was excavated in front and sent for postmortem.
The entire college is in a state of shock and the management promised to take severe action against the students.
The degree of cruelty and pain the monkey has gone through is beyond words. We have all been having sleepy nights after we saw the body of the monkey. Extremely distributed.
What’s happening to medical students these days?
Speaking to The Logical Indian, Dinesh said that the incident took place in Vellore on Monday. His team reached the university campus the very next day. They excavated the monkey’s body and sent it for a postmortem evaluation.
It is disheartening that the people who are studying to save lives would blatantly disregard the life of an animal. It is important to try and understand the psychological, emotional, and mental motivation for someone to carry out such acts. Sensitisation to such incidents is the need of the hour.
