Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda, who has always been vocal about issues related to the environment and animals, on Wednesday took to Twitter to appeal the Karnataka’s Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai and the Ministry of Environment and Forest to take strict action against a recent murder of 60 monkeys in the state.

Alongside the viral video, Hooda tweeted, “In an absolutely heinous act, more than 60 monkeys were poisoned, tied in bags and thrown on Sakleshpur Begur Crossroad in Hassan District, Karnataka. @moefcc @byadavbjp @aranya_kfd @CMofKarnataka”. With his tweet, he tagged the Chief Minister of Karnataka Basavaraj Bommai.
