Their canine victim was found alive on Tuesday by animal rights activists with the help of volunteers among residents. The little dog was named "Bhadra," the Hindi word for "blessed." She was injured and unable to walk, but still wagging her tail, according to an animal rights activist Shravan Krishnan. One of her legs was fractured, but vets who treated her said that she is out of danger.
"The Prevention of Cruelty Act is pretty outdated, it is a 1960 law and we want a change in that because they can just get away with a fine of Rs. 50," said Krishnan.
The fact that the students have already been released has also caused anger.
Animal rights activists are petitioning for tougher laws and stricter penalties to punish cruelty to animals.
