"Rampratap Paswan and Prakash Binge were seen hitting, kicking one of the injured dogs. One of them pulled the dog out of the basket using a cloth and threw it on the floor. He then pushed the dog in one corner and forcefully pressed the cloth over it. They even tried to cover the CCTV camera, and were heard saying, 'Aaj to isko khatm hi kar dete hai' (We should kill this dog today),” Singh said.

Although a complaint was filed with the Malabar Hill Police Station, it is said that the culprits were let off with just a warning. Officials from the Malabar Hill Police Station weren’t available for a comment, but the Zonal Deputy Commissioner of Police, Rajiv Jain said that he will look into the matter. “This is not enough for their inhuman treatment towards innocent animals. Their crooked mentality of suppressing the weaker living beings raises many concerns,” Priya Singh added.

The two employees were hired in 2018 and February 2020 respectively, and Singh said that this was necessary as she needed help with feeding stray dogs and cats not only at the shelter but also in other parts of the city. She has said that more footage from the past will be reviewed to understand the depths of their inhumanity.
