These two medical students, namely, Ashish Pal and Gautam Sudarshan had thrown a little pup from a roof top. However, the pup was saved by animal activist, Shravan Krishnan and named her “Bhadra”. The pooch suffered a fractured and has finally recovered from the injury. The two offenders were charged under Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act that involved a mere fine of Rs.10-50. This augmented the outrage even more. Hence, with the struggle and efforts put in by animal activists, these two have been fined heavily for their wrong doing.

On Tuesday, 30th August 2016, a committee created by MGR Medical University finally decided to act upon the incident and imposed a substantial fine as directed by Madras High Court. According to the Dean of Student Affairs of MGR Medical University, Dr. V. Senthilnathan, “We discussed a lot on this. This should never happen. That's the idea behind the fine.”
Apart from the fine, the two students who were enrolled in Madha Medical College have been suspended too. Bhadra is now safe and healthy and has been put up for adoption. We hope the little pup soon finds her furever home.
