Three among seven elderly people including three ladies were grievously injured in an attack by stray dogs in the Kulan Kangan area of Central Kashmir’s Budgam district on Friday.
Local sources told news agency Kashmir News Trust that a pack of stray dogs attacked people in the Kulan area injuring seven persons who were taken to a nearby Primary Health Centre. Three persons including a female were shifted to Sub-District Hospital Kangan for advanced treatment.
Those shifted to Kangan Hospital have sustained multiple injuries. The medics gave anti-rabies vaccine to victims who have been identified as Amina Begum (65), Zahoor Ahmed (40), Mubeena Begum (70) Maryam (60) Abdul Aziz (65), Ghulam Ali (70) and Akhtar Hussain.
Expressing resentment over the incident, the locals said that the responsibility of catching stray dogs lies with the municipal committee but it has failed to curb the dog menace in the area. [KNT]
