Remember Chennai medical students who threw dog from rooftop? They've been fined Rs 2 lakh each

Chennai: Two medical students, who threw a dog off the rooftop of a three-storeyed building and filmed the gruesome incident, were fined Rs 2 lakh each by a committee formed by the Tamil Nadu Dr. M.G.R. Medical University.

According to the committee's recommendation, the two students -- Gowtham Sudarshan and Ashish Paul -- of the Madha Medical College, should pay a fine of Rs 2 lakh each to the Animal Welfare Board.

The committee was formed as per the orders of the Madras High Court.

Last month, the video of the two students -- one throwing the dog down from the rooftop of a building and the other filming the gruesome act -- went viral and drew much revulsion.

Animal welfare activists made a police complaint and the two students were later arrested. The two got bail immediately.

The activists then moved the court for compensation for the dog that suffered a leg fracture.

University Vice Chancellor S. Geethalakshmi and Dean of Students S.V. Senthilnathan on Tuesday signed the penalty order as recommended by the committee.
