Shocking report of dog buried alive under hot tar road construction

A police complaint has been filed after a dog was alleged to have been buried alive under hot tar road construction in Agra, India. Social media immediately erupted into outrage when the disturbing incident was made public on Wednesday.

“Road construction company RP Infraventure Pvt. Ltd, constructed part of Fatehpur road over a dead dog in Agra. The dog’s body was removed after police complaint was filed, PWD has also sent a note to the company,” tweeted ANI UP, which also posted a photo of the tar being removed with a crane to lift out the dog’s body.

Witnesses however, have a different version of what happened and contend the dog had been buried under the hot tar while alive, and that during the time the dog had cried out in agony.

According to Outlook India, social activist Naresh Paras stated the following:

“A fresh layer of coal tar was being laid on the road from Phool Sayyed crossing towards the Circuit House and the Taj Mahal. A dog was sleeping on one side of the road. Instead of chasing the animal or removing it physically, burning coal tar was poured over it. Later, a road roller crushed the animal. The body has now disappeared…”

Twitter users have expressed their outrage and promise to help this dog find some justice. The project’s leader stated an investigation was underway and “those found guilty would be shunted out as punishment.”

Rest in peace poor pup.
