Kindly refer to the report of the Hindustan Times along with the Zee News story on this issue with video's coverage -http://www.care2.com/news/member/576059368/900563
As per the proof stated above, it is confirmed that the treatment with the laboratory animals in AIIMS animal house is not up to the mark / animals are being ill treated over there.
As per the guidelines issued by the CPCSEA -

So the further experimentation on the animals in AIIMS may be discontinued due to disobedience / violations of the set procedures.

AIIMS to probe dismal condition of animals at laboratory
New Delhi, Oct 07: Premier medical institute AIIMS today directed an inquiry into allegations of dismal conditions of animal species at its laboratory.

The move comes in the wake of some media reports alleging that around 90 rabbits, 68 monkeys and several sheep and guinea pigs were incarcerated in poor conditions at the AIIMS' central animal facility for years, leaving them physically and mentally sick.

"The authorities have asked the AIIMS Animal Welfare Committee and the Internal Animal Ethics Committee to inspect the facility and submit a report at the earliest, preferably within two days," said an official spokesperson.

Besides members of the Committee for Purpose of Control and Supervision of Experiments on Animals (CPCSEA) of the Environment Ministry also visited the institute to look into the allegations, he said.

"The reports of our own experts and that of the CPCSEA will be taken very seriously and appropriate action will be taken against offenders in any," he said.

Maintaining that the institute was open to take corrective action, the spokesperson said that so far no anomalies have been reported in the functioning of the facility.

"As far as the administration knows, all departments have been functioning as per the norms," he said, adding, the institute is, however, open to take appropriate measures if wrong practises were found in the awaited reports.

AIIMS flouts animal testing rules: Hindustan Times
New Delhi, Oct 06: The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) is excellent as a hospital. As a premier research institute, however, it may have disregarded rules in its treatment of animals kept for testing.

Sixty-eight monkeys, 90 rabbits, several sheep and ever-multiplying guinea pigs and rats — most are believed to be sick and dying in small cages at AIIMS’s central animal facility.

Fifty of the 90 rabbits are suffering from an infectious skin disease, and several including a few guinea pigs have gone blind.

Physical trauma apart, after years of captivity and lack of fresh air many monkeys and rats have gone over the edge: they spend their day going around in circles in their cages — called “nervous breakdown”.

All this information and a video were provided to Hindustan Times by a person who says he/she was allowed unrestricted access to the facility for several days recently.

Stung by reports of cruelty to animals in a laboratory at the premier All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here, animal rights organisation PETA has written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh asking for an inspection of the facility and the immediate rehabilitation of the animals 'languishing' there for years.

Following media reports of ill-treatment of animals at the AIIMS Central Animal Facility, a team of the Committee for the Purpose of Control and Supervision on Experiments on Animals (CPCSEA) had visited the facility.

'Anil Gupta Kumar, who is in the team inspecting the animal house of AIIMS, has issued statements in the media prior to the inspection of the animal house facility, defending AIIMS by saying that there is no problem in the animal housing facility and that it is up to the standards laid down by CPCSEA,' the letter from People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) said.

Such statements by CPCSEA inspection teams prior to any inspection gives the impression that it is trying to shield the AIIMS from the media and from action from the government, the letter added.

According to media reports, animals kept for testing at the facility have been there for more than 10 years, when CPCSEA guidelines say that animals should not be kept for more than three years.

'We request you to rehabilitate all the animals from the AIIMS urgently. We would further suggest that the CPCSEA should clearly and openly take a stand in favour of animals for which it has been formed under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act and under the Animal Welfare Division, and make animal house inspection reports public,' the PETA letter said.

'After all, it is the hard earned money of tax payers which is being used to fund cruel research on animals, and we are sure that people will not want that their hard earned money is being spent by the government to fund cruel animal abuse,' the letter added.

'PETA is willing to assist CPCSEA in all their inspections to help animals,' it said.

Thanks Naresh for all you are doing for animals. This is disgusting treatment of animals. What happened to the believe, that humans may come back as animals? I thought India was more animal friendly then most other countries. But, the money/profit pressure is coming to India as well. I don't buy any leather anymore (already 20 years!), since I learned how it is "harvested" and the horrible treatment of India's cows. What is wrong with people all over the world, that they can so easily look away from animal suffering??? Have they got no feelings? I could not sleep at night, if I was involved in animal suffering of any kind! Big hug to you Naresh for fighting for them.

OIPA INDIA congratulate Naresh Kadyan for this action but question mark on the Delhi Police & Wild Life Department along with the Animal Welfare Board of India working. You see the legal terms of the offenses committed under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, which is non-cognizable except three sub-sections of 11 & 12, where as the punishment is fifty rupees in first offense - in second offense fine or three months imprisonment / both. COGNIZABLE means that local Police can not arrest any accused with out court arrest warrant, no doubt Delhi Police made out DP Act, 1978 but the legality of offenses is the same, NO FIR only KALENDRA. There is a SPCA here in Delhi with zero % activities. As per section 96-97 of the Cattle Transport Rules, 1978 amended in 2001 under section 38 of the PCA Act, 1960 - the permit from the Chairman, AWBI is compulsory before animal transportation, where as offenses under section 38 are the NON-COGNIZABLE in legal terms then what is the use of the animal related laws here in India, so we demands the review / amendments in the existed laws for animals along with the rules for ANIMAL BREEDERS / PET SHOPS / FISH AQUARIUMS with out any further delay, if central or state Govt. are serious about animal rights & their welfare, I rate the integrity of both Govt.'s doubtful while dealing the subject.
