Petition seeking justice for Kerala elephant crosses 1.7 lakh signs

Jun 03, 2020 21:16 IST

Citizens have started an online petition on Change.org demanding justice for the pregnant elephant who became the victim of human cruelty in Kerala on Tuesday. The petition says, perhaps a more important question to ask is why we hear so much about voiceless deaths, and not enough about prosecutions? Due to loopholes in the judicial system how many will actually end up being sentenced?. It adds, that the law in India does not assign long prison sentences to crimes against animals, it pushes for rigorous sentencing with hefty fines. The elephant's death triggered outrage on social media with several condemning those responsible for the attack.
