Sonam who is known for her animal advocacy efforts, narrated the entire incident as it was recorded in the CCTV camera and wrote: Shared a video where the dog can be seen wriggling in pain. “Please help! An FIR has been registered with the Worli Police Station by Bombay Animal Rights on July 27 as Nishank had stopped responding to all our calls All videos & evidence available & provided to the police. We need help for this Pup from our animal welfare community BOMBAY ANIMAL RIGHTS 9920388000.”

“I apologise for tweeting something so disturbing but the need of the hour is to protect these beautiful animals. And for people who do not like animals, at least please do not hurt them,” ‘Batla House’ star John Abraham said on Twitter.
The Bombay Animal Rights has urged people to gather at the Turf View building on Tuesday to stage a protest against animal cruelty.
