The accused trios’ parents have filed for a bail plea but has been rejected, as per reports.

Arrest everyone involved! We love our mothers and the little baby more than the dog.

Great news. I love animals just as much as anyone else, especially dogs, but I know how to keep the right perspective on things. Assaulting a pregnant lady whilst trying to be an Animal Rights Activist is going too far. I hope they’ll be charged with murder.

They deserve a good lock up.
This is a very good example for everyone else.
We love pet animals, but we also have all our cultural rights to what we owned. Just because you and your community doesn’t eat meats of some specific animal. U cannot stop the other community to do so.
Why charge them only for assaulting?
Why not charge them for murder as well? The law for murder case should also be imply on them, since the pregnant woman Gracy Hmar has lost her developing baby as a result of the assault.
Wish all of you a happy jail life.😉.
