New Delhi :
The soul-stirring video of a man throwing a dog off from the roof has gone viral. The video shows a man mercilessly throwing the dog from the terrace of a building with a wide grin on his face. However, the good news is that the dog has survived. She would undergo treatment now as a young compassionate man, Shravan Krishnan, saved her life.
On Tuesday night, the poor dog, Bhadra, was photographed for the first time since her traumatic ordeal began where she looked weary and frail and her limps hung limply from her torso.
Shravan is the founder of Hotel For Dogs, a facility where dogs can stay in climate-controlled, soundproofed kennels, enjoy a dip in a swimming pool, and be pampered in a grooming parlour. According to the company’s website, he decided to open the hotel when he realised just how bad living conditions were in kennels where people temporarily left their dogs.
Besides,Shravan has also worked with a sea turtle conservation group for the better part of a decade. So one can only imagine his horror when he watched a video in which a young man grinned at the camera just seconds before he threw a vulnerable, terrified-looking Bhadra off a terrace.
“I won’t stop till I find him”, Shravan wrote in a Facebook post on Monday evening. “If Swathi’s murderer can be found, I’m confident this a**h**** can be found as well”, he posted just a half-hour later. And find him — or rather, them — he did.
Shravan’s Facebook posts tell the story that culminated in the identification of the criminals, MBBS students Gautam Sudarshan and Ashish Pal (the videographer), and Bhadra’s rescue. Shravan announced on Friday evening that Antony Rubin, an Honorary Animal Welfare Officer, had met the Commissioner of Police, who had then forwarded the case to none other than the Additional Commissioner who solved the Swathi murder case.
The names of the suspects emerged later that night and in the wee hours of Tuesday morning, Shravan posted a photo of the crime scene, saying it was “just a matter of time before the police nab(bed)” Sudarshan and Pal. (sic)
Subsequently, he announced that the culprits had been asked to surrender at the Kundrathur police station as soon as possible and that their college’s chairman had told them they wouldn’t be able to take their exams if they didn’t turn themselves in.
All we can say is that the efforts of Shravan, Antony and the others who worked so hard to bring Sudarshan and Pal to justice, are laudable and truly heroic.
