The incident took place on Tuesday, November 14. The child’s father said that his son, Daksh, stepped out of the home in search of his mother, who had gone to a nearby area to collect fodder for the animals.
As he stepped out, a pack of stray dogs attacked him, in which he sustained grievous injuries, the father said.
Following the incident, Daksh was rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors declared him brought dead.
District Veterinary Officer, Dr Aditya Tiwari, told India Today, “We got the information about the incident from the local newspapers. Several teams from the Bareilly Municipal Corporation have been carrying out campaigns to vaccinate dogs against rabies and sterilise them. So far, we have vaccinated and sterilized 1,500 stray dogs.”
However, the locals told a different story while speaking to India Today TV.
They said that cases of stray dog attacks have been on the rise and no action has been taken in this regard by the relevant authorities even after several requests.
