On November 19, four medical students from Christian Medical College, Vellore, caught a female monkey which entered their rooms. Instead of letting it go or calling wildlife or animal authorities to deal with the matter, the four decided to mete their own form of twisted punishment to the simian. The irony of it all! 

 

 

 

They tied its hands and started abusing and torturing it by beating it with sticks and belts. Their blatant disregard for the animal or its pain threshold was obvious, because after beating it, they proceeded to break its legs, jaws and finally mutilate it by pushing a rod up its anus and killed her. The monkey was buried behind the hostel mess by the college sweepers.If one were to see then this brutal assault of the female monkey echoes what happened to the victim in the Nirbhaya rape case.

 

 

An FIR has been filed against these students and cases were booked under IPC 429 and Wildlife protection act of 1972.
