The organisation further noted that their move is to help dogs and humans, as “violent people often start by abusing animals and then move on to target humans.” There is no information about the abusers yet or the place where the incident occurred. Meanwhile, netizens have been trending to #BanTikTokIndia after many videos of users glorifying abuses surfaced on the internet.
