A shocking video has gone viral on social media showing a man in Punjab's Kapurthala crushing a stray dog under his car.

The entire incident was recorded on a CCTV camera. The CCTV footage went viral after it was tweeted by Member of Parliament and animal rights activist Maneka Gandhi.

"This is Gurinder Singh son of Harbans Singh village Dandupur, Kapurthala in Punjab. He is a breeder and seller of dogs for dog fights. This is what he does to dogs when they are no longer useful. This dog died after 30 minutes of being in excruciating pain," Maneka Gandhi tweeted on Tuesday.

WARNING: The following video may be disturbing for some readers. Viewer discretion is advised.

The horrifying video shows a dog lying on the road when a turbaned man comes and enters his car and crushes the animal. The car driver doesn't even bother honking and just speeds away. Then the injured dog can be seen getting up in pain and leaving a pool of blood on the road.

Locals told the People For Animals (PFA) activists that the dog died within 30 minutes after being brutally crushed by the accused.

PFA activists traced the whereabouts of the person on the basis of his car registration number which can be seen in the footage. He has been identified as Gurinder Singh who lives in Dandupur village in Kapurthala.

"A video was shared in our group yesterday which shows a person crushing a dog under a car. We wanted to find out the whereabouts of the person. The only evidence with us was the car number plate. Our team members found that the vehicle is registered in the name of one Harbans Singh. His son had kept a number of dogs in small cages. He was not found at home. An FIR has been registered but he has not been arrested so far," says Shalini a member of PFA, Amritsar said.

The Tanwandi Chaudharian Police Station has registered a case against the accused on the basis of a complaint filed by PFA activists.

"We have registered a case against the accused. We have no information about the dog. Action will be taken against the accused under the law," ASI Avtar Singh told India Today TV.

The PFA activists visited the accused's home along with police officials on Tuesday but he was not at home. They, however, managed to locate his mother.

During the investigation, it emerged that the accused used to run a dog-fight ring and kept several dogs in captivity to use in those fights.

The activists found several dogs kept inside cages in a ricefield near Singh's house and rescued the animals. Sources on the scene said the accused's family tried to release the dogs and threw puppies towards the police team.

The accused is presently at large. The police officials have claimed he will be arrested soon.
