Indian citizen Pradhuman Singh Naruka, driving on a Rajasthan highway, was in shock as he tilted his camera from his car towards a man on the road devouring a dead dog’s carcass. The incident has once again highlighted how hunger and poverty is ravaging India amidst the coronavirus lockdown.
“This man is eating [dog] meat on the road,” he narrates in the video he shared on social media.
“You don’t have food to eat? What are you eating? You will die!” he shouts at the man.Then he instructs the man to stand at the side of the road where he approaches him with a lunchbox of food and gives him a water bottle, while covering his mouth with a handkerchief.
Without hesitation, the hungry man begins to eat the food as Naruka questions him about his background and tells him that he will give him money.
Then Naruka says to the camera: “I saw this man eating an animal that might have died on the road when I was on my way to Delhi. If you see a person on your way please help them and share this video with the government as much as you can.”
