It was as disturbing a sight as it can get, a dog half buried in tar lying on the side of a road.
The image surfaced earlier this week, from Agra, Uttar Pradesh.
According to ANI, the construction company RP Infraventure constructed part of Fatehpur road over a dead dog. The dog’s body was removed after police complaint was filed. However, social activist Naresh Paras told PTI that workers were laying a fresh layer of coal tar while constructing the road from Phool Sayyed crossing towards the Circuit House and the Taj Mahal, and the stray dog was ‘sleeping’ on the roadside.
