In a mind-numbing incident, a mob strangled a horse on a public road in Jind, Haryana, under the supervision of two policemen. 

The incident occurred on Tuesday near Gohana Road.

The police received a call that a horse was attacking people and rushed two men Assistant Sub-inspector of Police, Rajendra, and Special Police Officer, Subhash, to control the horse. 

A distressing video captures what happened next. 

It shows the horse tied up and pushed to the ground with a rope slipped around its neck. 

One end of the rope is tethered to a pole, while the other end is pulled by a few men to tighten the noose and strangle the helpless animal.

As the policemen oversee the execution, a few other men pull the ropes tied to the head and legs of horse to render it immobile.   

As the horse dies a slow and an agonising death, a few of them film the incident cheerfully treating it as a fun event. 

An eyewitness Devender Singh said, “The men who brought the horse down thought it was mad and decided to kill it.”

The gory video went viral sparking off outrage and forcing police to act. 

Ten men who were seen in the video killing the horse have been booked for animal cruelty. The two policemen have been transferred and an inquiry has been ordered against them.

A defiant inspector Dinesh Kumar of the Civil Lines police station told The Hindustan Times that the police only helped in controlling the horse as it was getting violent.

When the reporter asked him if it was necessary to strangle the horse, he reportedly said, “You should have come and controlled it.”
