    This is an awful crime that these students should receive punishment for. Heinous! The worst part is they are medical students, I don't see any compion for care. They should not be allowed back in school. This is the last Doctor the world needs.

In the same manner that poor totured animal was suffering!lt;br/gt;50 rupees fine...... Is that a joke!! They need to be put behind bars for a long time....... Shame on these lowlife creatures and shame on their families who raised them but did not give them any good vales!!

        These are medical students? They should be expelled. What kind of a "Doctor" would do this? How would they torture their patients?

                  What is the private colleges opinion on their students who are going to tread people when they did this to a dog. I bet this is not the first time they did something like this.
