A video has gone viral in which 3 men can be seen tying a stray dog to their scooty. The culprits then made the helpless dog run at a high speed and dragged it for a short distance, while shamelessly filming the entire incident.

It is clear from the video that the intention was to hurt the animal, which kept running at the same speed to avoid being dragged. None of the culprits wore helmets and the registration number of the scooty has further been identified to nab them.
