"This is really cruel... I mean why torture the fish for nothing... If she wanted to eat it then it was okay, but she didn't... She was just enjoying... unacceptable," wrote an Instagrammer.
Another person wrote, "The fish is pierced through its neck and traumatized and who knows whether it survived or not."
Shilpa then had to justify herself
Justifying her actions, Shilpa said, "Dear Instafam, just want you guys to know that I'm a "non-vegetarian", I've made no bones abt it. But despite me being one, this fish isn't the kind one eats so I released it....Yes I did...And NO it DIDN'T DIE."
