A video going viral on social media shows a dog chained to a car being dragged around by the driver. The users who posted the video on social media said it was shot in Rajasthan's Jodhpur on Sunday and that the driver is a doctor. The video shows the man driving the car and the dog struggling to keep up. The clip of animal cruelty has angered social media users who are demanding strict punishment for the doctor.
The video has been shot by a vehicle that is following the car. A man on a motorcycle is seen pulling up his vehicle in front of the car, forcing the driver to stop.
The incident happened on a busy road where several other vehicles can also be seen. The dog can be seen dangerously swerving from one side of the vehicle to the other because of the long rope, which puts its life in danger.
The locals gather around the vehicle and unchain the dog. Some of them also informed an NGO, which took the dog to a hospital.
According to a tweet posted by the NGO Dog Home Foundation, the name of the doctor is Rajneesh Galwa. He was quoted as saying by local media outlets that the stray dog loves near his house and he was trying to remove it.
