Kolkata: The 16 puppies, which were found dead on NRS Med­i­cal Col­lege and Hospi­tal cam­pus on Sun­day, had been blud­geoned with blunt weapons, a pre­lim­i­nary post­mortem re­port said on Mon­day. The re­port sug­gested 12 puppies had se­vere brain haem­or­rhage and four had their stom­ach and liver rup­tured.

A video of the as­sault, shot from sec­ond floor of R Ahmed Den­tal Col­lege Hos­tel, has helped cops and a team of hospi­tal of­fi­cials prob­ing the case “iden­tify a strong sus­pect” — a nurs­ing stu­dent. The 28-sec­ond mo­bile video clip shows two women beat­ing up the puppies be­hind the nurses’ hos­tel.

“We have iden­ti­fied a nurs­ing stu­dent, whose pro­file matches that of one of the women. We ques­tioned her but she de­nied be­ing present on Sun­day,” NRS Hospi­tal deputy su­per­in­ten­dent Dwai­payan Biswas said.
