As the video starts, a stray is seen crossing the road and suddenly spots a car coming in at high speed. The dog stops to wait for the car but the driver turns it in the direction of the animal and crushes the dog.
The driver didn’t stop and is seen exiting the camera frame.
The dog, meanwhile, was thrown a few feet off the road due to the impact and is also not visible. But concerned locals are seen rushing towards the animal to see if it can be rescued.
Several users, including dog lovers and animal rights activists, slammed the behaviour of the driver and tagged Noida police as well as Peta India seeking action against the driver.
“Someone who couldn’t speak was brutally killed without any reason. Incident in Omicron-2 sector of Greater Noida,” said one user.
“Vehicles at such high speed is a nuisance for everyone, especially during morning hours when children go to school. Strict action should be taken against them,” commented another user.
उक्त प्रकरण में थाना दादरी पर अभियोग पंजीकृत कर अग्रिम आवश्यक विधिक कार्यवाही की जा रही है।
