Moreover, the doctor dared to carry out the inhumane act on a busy road. Several other vehicles can be seen passing by.
In a bid to free itself and save its own life, the dog can be seen dangerously swerving from one side of the vehicle to the other.
While many vehicles just pass by, a motorist showed courage and followed the doctor while also making a video of the heinous incident. He pulled up his vehicle in front of the car and forced the doctor to release the dog. However, the dog has got multiple fractures due to the inhumane act.
Soon after passers-by gathered around the vehicle and unchain the dog. They later informed an NGO, that reached the spot and rescued the dog. The dog was then taken to a hospital.
Later, the NGO also registered a police complaint against the doctor. In the FIR, they registered a case under Animal Cruelty Act. Later, the NGO also shared a copy of their FIR on twitter.
However, the accused doctor tried to clarify his heinous crime and said that many stray dogs leave around his house and he was just trying to remove them.
