A six-year-old girl was bitten by a pack of over ten dogs in Bengaluru on Thursday.
Ramya, who is a resident of Anjana Nagar, of Magadi Road, is wounded in at least 15 parts of her body, from head to toe and is under observation at the pediatric intensive care unit of KIMS Hospital.
The incident happened when Ramya was playing with another girl on the street.
According to The Times of India, the two girls started running when they saw two dogs nearing them and Ramya happened to fall. More dogs joined in and pounced on her.
“There were many dogs around the child and we couldn't rescue her immediately. People started throwing stones at the dogs to chase them away. By the time we pulled her out, she had been attacked badly,” said Manju, a relative of the girl.
“Dogs have ripped off a large amount of flesh from her thighs. She is responding to treatment,” a hospital official said.
On the other hand the family members and neighbours are accusing BBMP officials for not acting on their complaints of garbage pile up and dog menace.
“We came to KIMS at 4 pm. Doctors say she is serious, but we hope she will be all right,’’ Rame Gowda said.
BBMP Joint Director (Animal Husbandry) Maheshwara Gowda said a team had visited the hospital and would take care of all the treatment expenses, reported TNIE.
