A four-year-old boy has died after being attacked by stray dogs in Hyderabad Deccan, India.
According to Times Now, in this shocking incident, the stray dogs roaming in the street of the housing society of Hyderabad attacked a four-year-old child, due to which the child named Pradeep died.
In the CCTV footage of the incident, it can be seen that the child was walking in the street when he was attacked by stray dogs. The dogs kept scratching the child during the attack, causing the child to bleed profusely.
According to reports, the dead child’s father, identified as Gangadhar, is a watchman in the residential area.
Hearing his son’s cries, Gangadhar rushed to the spot, after which he was taken to a nearby hospital where Pradeep succumbed to his injuries.
Incidents of biting by stray dogs have happened many times before in many cities of India.
Earlier, a seven-year-old boy died after being bitten by stray dogs in Saharanpur of Uttar Pradesh.
Superintendent of Police Suraj Raj said that a boy named Kanha was playing in the garden of his house when stray dogs attacked him.
Citizens are also expressing their anger on the social networking website Twitter over this heartbreaking incident that happened in Hyderabad Deccan.
“I am the father of a ten-month-old child,” wrote a handle named Krolzter, expressing his feelings. For me, this incident is heartbreaking.
“Horrible, that’s why I stay away from stray dogs,” says Sandeep Rao. The need of the hour is now that we have to do something about stray dogs.
Sunanda Vashisht commented in her tweet, “Horrible, I couldn’t bear to see this.” Some time ago this also happened in Delhi where dogs attacked a child as a result of which the innocent child was killed. There is also a problem of stray dogs in Delhi. Elderly citizens and children are at risk.
