  1. Shame on them if they are so interested they can do to there mothers are sisters same thing why the fuck for that poor animal they have done

  2. Survival of the fittest!

  3. Why are medical students especially the ones in hostels so cruel and sadistic when they are the ones who will be entrusted with human lives in future? It seems they get highly frustrated and bored while pursuing a tough lengthy course like MBBS and find torturing dumb animals a source of entertainment and an easy target to vent their pent up frustrations. They should find other non offensive and ethical means to expend their excessive energies.

  4. Inhuman act by future Doctors and that too in an Institute which teaches them compassion apart from medicine, my son studied there so I know first hand

  5. What a shame? Are these students supposed to be doctors of tomorrow or prospective criminals and murderers? If this is the way they are treating animals, it is better that they are removed from pursuing medical education. We don\’t need such characters practising medicine. They are a threat to civil society. Unfortunately, because of their actions, the name of a reputed college has been badly tarnished. The college should take tough action to retrieve the situation.
