So, some students stoned him to death.”

    Send all the medical expense bills to Maneka Gandhi, who originated the anti-culling bill of stray dogs. I understand we have to be more passionate but the unprecedented growth of these animals is harming the entire Indian population. The majors taken to control the population of these stray dogs isn't working. So something needs to be done as soon as possible else people have to take matters in their hands.
