  • | Tuesday | 27th February, 2024

An auto-rickshaw driver was thrashed by a man and bitten multiple times by his dog for allegedly asking the owner to keep the pet on a leash, police said on Monday. The incident took place in south Delhis Aya Nagar on February 15 when the 30-year-old victim, Bhrim Singh, was on his way to work. I left home at around 12.30 pm and my neighbour Jiwan Jyoti was on the street with his dog. As the canine was barking at me, I asked the owner to keep the dog on a leash, read the FIR, registered at Fatehpur Beri police station. This angered Jyoti who physically assaulted Singh while his dog bit him multiple times on one of his legs, face and a hand. Singh informed the police about the matter on February 16. We have registered an FIR under sections 289 (negligent conduct with respect to animal), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), and 341 ( wrongful restraint) of the Indian Penal Code. We will question the dog owner, a senior police officer said. There has been a string of dog attacks in Delhi since the turn of the year. On Saturday, a two-year-old girl was allegedly mauled to death by a pack of stray dogs in the Dhobhi Ghat area of New Delhis Tughlaq Lane. In another incident on January 22, a two-year-old girl was allegedly attacked by a pet dog in northeast Delhis Vishwas Nagar. A day before that, a seven-year-old boy was injured in northwest Delhis Mahendra Park area after allegedly being attacked by a Pitbull. In the Shahbad Dairy area, a seven-year-old girl was allegedly attacked by an American Bully when she was playing near her home.  In another incident, a Pitbull allegedly snatched an 18-month-old child from her grandfathers lap and mauled her in Buraris Uttarakhand Colony.
