New Delhi: 16 puppies' mutilated dead bodies, were found in garbage bags at Kolkata's government-run medical college and hospital, which triggered an outrage among animal rights activists and on social media. 

An injured dog was spotted by a local woman. The dog was seen struggling out of one of those plastic bags that had been dumped at a garbage vat inside NRS Medical College and Hospital in the heart of the city.  The woman after spotting the dog, raised an alarm. An animal rights activist, who lived nearby immediately came to the spot and retrieved the bodies of 16 dead pups from the bags.

After the lady raised an alarm, many people gathered and hospital authorities called the police and a First Information Report (FIR) was registered. The bodies of the pups have been sent for postmortem at the veterinary college.

After a while, a disturbing video of two women beating some pups to death went viral on social media. The video appeared to have been taken by residents of a dental college hostel adjacent to the NRS Hospital, where the pups were found.

The CCTV footage was examined by the police to identify the two women. Some claim they have been identified and will be arrested shortly.

Activists said that, this is easily the most brutal attack on dogs seen in Kolkata in recent times. They are demanding a thorough probe.
