Three students have been arrested for allegedly killing and cooking their pet dog.

Reports in India Today state that the three students, known only as Dholjit, Michael and Romen, were arrested in connection with the incident which occurred in the city of Bangalore, India.

The three were arrested after their neighbour lodged a complaint after he grew suspicious of a smell coming from the students’ accommodation.

The man was shocked and appalled when he entered the property only to find that the 20-year-olds had killed and skinned their pet dog and were preparing to devour it.

It’s thought that the students first brought the dog six months ago, and had raised it at their home before killing it on Wednesday.

All three students have been charged with the killing or maiming of an animal of value under the Indian Penal Code, and could face up to two years in jail.
