In a horrifying video, that is doing rounds on the internet, two young men can be seen torturing and beating a young gangetic dolphin to death in Kolkata.
The dolpin in the viral video was just a few weeks old.
And if that wasn’t enough, after abusing the young infant, the men shamelessly flung the bloodied animal back into the river.
The exact location of the incident is not known yet but, the place where this incident took place was somewhere between Kolkata and Burdwan.
After noted environmentalist, Biswajit Roychowdhury’s organization complained about the incident to the Principal Chief Conservator of Forests, the matter has been put under investigation.
This viral video has also sparked outrage online and people just can’t believe their eyes. The way this helpless infant was mercilessly tortured is just sad.
It seems lockdown hasn’t been able to root out the ‘viruses’ responsible for the disappearance of the dolphins from river in first place. Young #gangetic #Dolphin was literally tortured to death by bunch of young men https://t.co/L4S8OiThyd— fairy queen (@akri2000) May 13, 2020

Will @MamataOfficial govt will take action in favour of endangered species and the culprits who are torturing river dolphin? https://t.co/dJ46DhXEk9
Dolphins are emotional animals with individualistic personalities. Having said that no animal should suffer at the hands of beasts& such men shouldn’t walk free @KolkataPolice @girirajsinghbjp @MamataOfficial we need strict laws— will talk (@ShivP2992) May 14, 2020
Have these men been arrested? This can’t go on. Why can’t we get everyone to care? This is heart breaking. @MamataOfficial @PrakashJavdekar— Devika Chopra (@ilah108) May 13, 2020

They all are beast🤬— Rahul Kashyap (@RahulKa40934149) May 13, 2020
We hope stringent action is taken against the culprits. No animal deserves to be tortured this way. This is just unacceptable.
