By India Today Web Desk: In a horrific incident, a group of students allegedly ganged up on a pregnant street dog and bludgeoned her to death in South West Delhi. The defendants are believed to be students of the Don Bosco Technical Institute located in Okhla. The mob of students tortured the dog, killed her and then dragged her lifeless body across the field, video reveals.

The disturbing video shows a gang of students, all men, cornering the dog inside a tin shed on the institute’s campus. A student can be seen outside the shed with a rod in hand and the remaining students cheering him on from outside.
