Can you help find this killer?
An animal rights group has offered a reward of Tk1 lakh for information leading to the arrest of a person seen in a video brutally murdering a dog. The disturbing footage was posted to Facebook on September 5 by an online news portal muktosangbad.com and is still available on their page. In an announcement on Friday night, the animal welfare foundation Obhoyaronno offered cash reward for valid information leading to the identification and arrest of the man. Neither the location nor the date of the incident could be confirmed. The video shows a middle-aged man with a short beard clad in an orange shirt and lungi attacking a sleeping dog with a log. Over the length of the one minute and 37 seconds long video, the man repeatedly hits the dog until it dies. When contacted, muktosangbad.com Executive Editor Altaf Hossain said they had obtained the video from a Facebook profile which could not be traced back later on. “Unfortunately we did not keep track of that profile. But it did not provide any information about the video either,” he said. In a Facebook post, Obhoyaronno founder Rubaiya Ahmad requested anyone with valid information call 01718643497 or e-mail at [email protected], offering a reward of up to 1,00,000 BDT for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the killer. Nadia Choudhury, head of Obhoyaronno's legal affairs, said they had announced the cash reward to highlight the cause. “The cash reward is our way of raising awareness, which has successfully happened recently in India where a man threw a dog from a roof and he was caught after the video went viral,” she told the Dhaka Tribune. Several months ago, a Tamil Nadu medical student was filmed by his friend throwing a dog from the terrace. The Humane Society of India offered 100,000 rupees as reward for anyone able to identify them. The culprits were arrested but got out on bail in early July. However, the punishment for cruelty towards animals in Bangladesh is very light. The culprit in question can be sentenced to maximum six-month imprisonment and fined Tk200. Nadia said the law was drafted in the 1920s and her group was working with the law commission to update it. The video can be seen on Facebook at this link. WARNING: the video contains graphic violence and sound and is not suitable for some audiences.
