The tall claims of the Chandigarh municipal corporation for having checked on stray dog menace have fallen flat, as a 40-year-old resident of sector 35 was bitten by stray dogs in the market on Monday.
Victim Davidson, said, “As I entered the parking area in the Sector- 35 market, three dogs pounced on me and one of them bit on my left leg. I rushed to Government Medical College and Hospital, Sector 32, for treatment. So many cases of dog bite are being reported from this market, but MC fails to take any action.”
Shopkeepers said “There are five to six stray dogs in the market who create terror. They attack visitors every day and despite informing the civic body several times, the officials have not even visited the area once.”
Dr MS Kamboj, superintendent, slaughterhouse, assured that the MC would conduct a drive in the area and catch all stray dogs on Tuesday.
