Actor Arjun Rampal extends his support to PETA's campaign to ban horse driven carriages in the city.

The 40-year-old has written a letter to Sitaram Kunte, municipal commissioner of Greater Mumbai, urging him to ban horse-drawn carriages from the city's streets, just before the next court hearing on April 2, said a statement from PETA (People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals).

"As a Mumbaiite and a person who cares deeply for animals, I am writing to add my voice to the campaign by my friends at PETA India for an immediate and permanent ban on horse-drawn carriage rides in the city," Arjun wrote.

"The manner in which these magnificent animals are treated is a crime. I respectfully request that you enact an all-out city-wide ban on horse-drawn carriages," he added.

The first court hearing regarding the same took place on Jan 15 this year, where out of 53 only 18 Victoria Carriages were found to be legal in the city.

PETA had last year requested municipal commissioner of Delhi to uphold a ban on horse-drawn carriages in the capital citing cruelty to the animals.

    Nice thought but he should stop smoking and polluting the air for second-hand smokers first.

    Also, PETA has killed more rescue animals that anyone. Check the news before standing with them.
