In an absolutely shocking incident that took place in Agra, a dog was buried under hot tar as road construction workers built the Fatehpur road over its body, reported ANI.

A police complaint was filed, following which the dog’s body was removed and the Public Works Department (PWD) issued a complaint notice to the road construction company, RP Infraventure Pvt. Ltd.

Upon finding out about the incident, several furious citizens condemned the brutal act.

“Road construction company RP Infraventure Pvt. Ltd. constructed part of Fatehpur road over a dead dog in Agra. The dog’s body was removed after police complaint was filed,PWD has also sent a notice to the company.” tweeted ANI UP, which also had a picture of the tar being removed with a crane to remove the dog’s body.

“The dog wasn’t dead. People nearby alleged that the dog was howling in pain. Such a inhumane act and the accused are still to be identified. Accused are still to be identified though being worker of the company.” claimed Homi Sharma in his tweet,

“I hope you have better Animal Welfare Laws and Enforcement before ANYONE WILL WANT TO VISIT YOUR COUNTRY, INDIA,” wrote a Twitter user with the handle @DEB_PolkaDot.
