Vitakridrinda is a genus of abelisaurid theropod dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous of Balochistan, western Pakistan. The type species is V. sulaimani. The discovery was made (along with other dinosaur specimens) near Vitariki by a team of palaeontologists from the Geological Survey of Pakistan, in rocks from the Maastrichtian-age Vitakri Member of the Pab Formation. Formally described in 2006 by M.S. Malkani, the genus is based on partial remains including two thigh bones, a braincase, and a tooth. A partial snout was later found that Malkani assigned to the holotype, and additional vertebrae may also belong to this genus. However, the snout was later reclassified as a new genus of mesoeucrocodylian, Induszalim.
