Actress Celina Jaitley has always been active when it comes to social causes and the actress filed a police complaint against MLA Vinay Kore on behalf of PETA for cruelty and abuse of a young elephant named ‘Sunder’.
According to a health examination report, PETA became aware of the condition of Sunder as it stated that the elephant had deep wounds and was chained for a long time. Hence, when Celina joined hands with PETA she decided to present this in the court of law.
Talking about the incident Celina says, “I just could not take the constant flow of merciless evidence of Sunder’s state pouring in from our brave undercover investigators of PETA India.
Sunder’s plight is heart rending, we are such Hippocrates. On one hand we worship the elephant and on another we rip our Gods creation piece by piece so mercilessly and brutally. The irony in Sunders case being, he is tortured to be trained to work for God’s own house. I am sure Gods are angry too. We had to do something and we did it. This is my way of devotion to Lord Ganpati.”
Also, the police has received a complaint stating the Section 11(1)(a) of The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act and also Section 42 of the Indian Wildlife Protection Act which states that the animals must be provided hygiene and safe environment for a living has been violated.
The Bombay High Court has asked the Forest officials to relocate Sunder from Kolhapur to a rehabilitation centre in Karnataka before monsoons.
