Kolkata: A chaos broke out at NRS Medical College and Hospital on Sunday afternoon after some of the staff found 16 dead puppies wrapped inside a plastic packet.

The plastic bag was spotted on the ground at the parking area near the administrative building of the hospital at around 3 pm. Eyewitnesses told police that two women were carrying the plastic bag and had dumped it at the parking area at around 2 pm. Nobody had a clue that the bag would contain 16 dead puppies.

After being informed police and some animal activists rushed to the spot. According to the preliminary investigation, police suspect that the puppies might have been poisoned to death as certain food items were also found inside the packet. The animal activists, who were at the spot, demanded a forensic test in order to confirm if the puppies were poisoned. Police are investigating if any hospital employee is involved in the incident and are not ruling out such a possibility

A senior official of NRS said there are some CCTVs installed inside the hospital premises that are going to help police identify the culprits.

Cops are investigating if the puppies were there inside the hospital premises from before or brought from outside after being poisoned.

They have recovered the carcasses from the spot. A detailed probe has been initiated in this regard.
