In a disturbing video that has been doing the rounds on social media, a monkey was seen being repeatedly tortured by a group of men in Uttar Pradesh's Pilibhit.

In a 2-minute video, several men were seen poking the monkey with sticks as one of them pins it to the ground from behind.

Another walks up to the monkey and covers it in a black liquid before allowing it to escape.

According to the Uttar Pradesh police, four people have been arrested in connection with the incident and fined Rs 60,000 after a complaint by local forest department officials.

Last month, a video from Telangana's Khammam district emerged on social media where a monkey that entered a home in search of food was killed after being beaten, hung from a tree, and forced to fight for its life against dogs.
