Stray dogs maul another toddler

BANGALORE: Even as Bangaloreans recovered from the shock of stray dogs mauling two-and-a-half-year-old Sandeep in Yelahanka on Thursday, a similar attack unfolded at Uttarahalli on Friday evening.

Kajol, also 2 1/2 years old, was badly bitten on her thigh by stray dogs. She is being treated at
Nagarathna Clinic in Happy Valley, Uttarahalli. She is the daughter of construction labourers Lakshmi and Yellappa from Bijapur.

"She was playing on the road close to her shed. Two dogs were fighting and suddenly pounced on Kajol. Their house is not protected from snakes, stray dogs and rodents," said Uttarahalli corporator Ramesh Raju.
BBMP bore the cost of treatment and assured the couple assistance of Rs 25,000.

Uttarahalli is one of the biggest wards with an area of 10.25 sqkm. Littered garbage leads to many stray dogs around the ward, claimed the corporator.

Sandeep mystery deepens

The post-mortem report of Sandeep clearly states he was bitten by an animal. But several questions are troubling investigators.

A police officer who conducted the preliminary investigation raised several questions. "First of all, there was no watchman in the private nursing home where Sandeep's mother had been admitted. The boy and his father had taken shelter in the basement. Nobody knows how the small child could have gone out from there. There are no blood stains on the staircase leading to the road. There's blood only on the road which indicates he had been mauled by dogs on the road," he said.

Police feel the area is thickly populated, with several apartments in the vicinity. "Anyone moving around in the area after midnight would have seen the dogs dragging him out of the basement. Several persons, including those coming home late after their night shift at work, didn't notice any trouble in the area. We're going into these aspects now," said police.

BBMP volte-face

There are several questions about Sandeep's father being in a drunken stupor at the time of the incident. "How can the BBMP blame the child's father when father and child were huddled in the basement where nobody can reach so easily? This is ridiculous. There's no way dogs could have entered the basement. We'll look into this aspect," police said.

Sir, on behalf of PVCHR, I request you to look into the matter and take necessary action.


With regards,
