Why this petition matters
Manika, a street dog, was found injured on the streets of Delhi by a kind soul. She was rescued and admitted to India's oldest and Asia’s largest all-animal shelter, the Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre (SGACC), located in the capital city with a hope that she will receive proper treatment and will someday go back home.
Instead, she was murdered in cold blood by the two Paravets and also allegedly raped by them. Manika was put through this ordeal, as a punishment, for biting one of them in pain while receiving treatment.
She was rescued by a female staff of SGACC, who being the only eye witness to this has found herself at the receiving end of threats including and not limited to that of physical abuse for recording the torture and ousting one of the routine activities that are undertaken at India's oldest and Asia’s largest all-animal shelter.
The UTTER and DEAFENING SILENCE of upper management in the wake of this TRUST SHATTERING & SHAMEFUL horrific string of activities that took place at India's oldest and Asia’s largest all-animal shelter, the Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre (SGACC), is deeply disturbing.
WHY IS THERE No Swift action and Penalty executed for such a #Crime & perverse #AnimalAbuse, in the very place that promised to be a safe haven and healing sanctuary for thousands from miles around??
As compassionate citizens of India and as animal lovers that we fondly call ourselves ---- we should and Must stand for what's right, and seek #JusticeForManika - without Bias, without Prejudice!
This petition for #JusticeForManika, stands forth you for the following reasons -
1. The perpetrators and the organisation should be strictly punished so that this incident serves as a deterrent and a lesson for those who harm animals in the guise of Animal Welfare.
2. Active monitoring and incorporation of checks and balances in place by Animal Welfare Board of India whose foremost function is to ensure implementation of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 as well as the local state husbandry department for the sake of welfare of the animals, especially to regulate the functioning of all establishments housing any animal.
3. Amend the Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Act, 1960, by making all actions & omissions amounting to cruelty to animals cognizable and updating the penalty prescribed to inflation corrected amounts as of 2020.
Please sign and share this petition, post it on your social media so that Manika gets justice without bias and prejudice.
