Street dogs seriously injured 10 people in Malviya Nagar over the last 24 hours. Residents of Malviya Nagar are in panic and thinking twice before going out of their homes.

The incident has reported a day after a group if a stray dog attacked and bit a 6-year-old girl in Patrakar Colony. She sustained severe injuries and is battling for life in ICU at a hospital.

The local residents claimed that about 22 people were bitten by dogs in the past 3 to 4 days. The dogs chased people in Sector 5 and Sector 8 of Malviya Nagar area.

This has raised a question mark over the efforts of the Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC) on controlling the mishap. The residents complained that their repeated plea to the JMC officials hasn’t been successful.

According to a local resident, “We have requested them to catch these stray dogs many times, nothing seems to have been done. They even do not attend our calls now.”
