New Delhi, July 21 Animal lovers and activists gathered in large numbers at Jantar Mantar on Monday to mourn the death of a dog by a PhD student of Jawaharlal Nehru University on July 7.
While protesting the dog's murder, activists demanded that Yoronso, the 30-year-old student accused of killing the dog, should be barred from submitting his thesis to any university, either in India or abroad. "It is shocking that no authority is taking action; Yoronso should immediately be put behind bars," Rukmini Sekhar, animal rights activist from Citizens for Animals, said.
"Killing of the dog in such a manner is illegal, inhuman and a criminal offence. Yoronso is a criminal and should be treated as such," said Sonya Ghosh, an animal rights activist who lodged a complaint with police in the case.
