Four students from the Christian Medical College, Vellore - Jasper Samuel Sahoo, Rohit Kumar Yenukotti, Arun Loui Sasikumar and Alex Chekalayil, mercilessly tortured a monkey to death.

On the horrific incident, The New Indian Express reported - "Autopsy revealed that the animal's neck, hands and legs were tied up with a wire. We observed fractures in the monkey’s knee, neck and ankle, indicating it underwent cruelty. The worst part was that the neck was stabbed with the sharp object. The wound had both entry and exit marks, pointing towards the sharp object penetrating from behind and coming out from the front of the neck." 

These students, who are studying to be doctors, willfully went through with such a barbaric, senseless act of violence against a helpless creature which could not raise it's voice. 

"The carcass of the monkey was exhumed from behind the mess of the men's hostel. The monkey was around 12 months old. It had multiple fractures. Its hands were tied behind its back, a telephone cord tied around its neck and a sharp object was inserted into the anus," the Times of India reported.

Here is the Times of India's report on the incident. 

It is beyond comprehension what was the thinking behind this act which was committed deliberately and while the students were in full possession of their mental faculties. These people have lost the right to be doctors in any form. The CMC Vellore has only suspended the students whereas they should be expelled from the college and their record should not allow them to study medicine further at this institution or any other medical college in India. 

I am starting this petition to urge the CMC Vellore to expel these students, who in their shockingly violent, inhumane, horrifically barbaric actions have exhibited their total lack of compassion towards living beings, thus disqualifying them to treat any living creature, animal or human as  members of the medical profession. 

The incident deeply disturbed and saddened me and a number of people I know. 

I urge everyone to sign this petition keeping only one thing in mind - would you want yourself or your family being treated by a doctor who is capable of and has actually committed such cruelty?
