A viral video of a Dolphin being beaten to death by a group of men in Pratapgarh, Uttar Pradesh, shocked the netizens.
Though this incident took place weeks ago, it became sensational after the video of the crime became viral.
Sickening. The perverse pleasure these men are deriving from this act is chilling. They need to be psychologically evaluated and taken to task. These men are a hazard to society. Today it is a dolphin.Tomorrow it WILL be a human @Manekagandhibjp @Uppolice @PetaIndia @asharmeet02 https://t.co/pY9vSFzm1k— Pooja Bhatt (@PoojaB1972) January 8, 2021
Pratapgarh Police said that the three accused men have been arrested and sent to jail.
Young men with lathis attacked the dolphin after it strayed into Sharda Sahayak Canal in the Pratapgarh district and they argued that they mistook it as a deadly fish.
Dolphins are regarded as extremely friendly forms of life on Earth.
