Officials said that around 25 students and staff members from Don Bosco Technical Institute in South East Delhi allegedly ganged up on a pregnant street dog and bludgeoned her to death after torturing her.

The New Friends Colony Police Department filed a FIR after a video of a gruesome killing in a park surfaced on social media.

According to the complaint, two institute brothers were also allegedly present under staff orders. According to the video, an all-male gang of students cornered the scared dog inside a tin shed on the institute's campus, which is entered by a student holding a rod, and the remaining students cheering him on from outside.

The 15-minute-long video depicting the animal's murder went viral on Saturday, with activists and dog lovers demanding harsh punishment for the accused.
