It says that the civic bodies must “move out stray dogs and monkeys, which endanger human lives, immediately to forested areas” and “parks must be gated and boundary walled so that strays don’t enter them.”

The committee advised the central Government to declare Rabies a “Notifiable Disease,” whereby each hospital or laboratory (including private) has to report every case of rabies to authorities like dengue, chikungunya and malaria.

The committee had MLAs Somnath Bharti, Rajesh Rishi, Saurabh Bharadwaj and Om Prakash Sharma as members.
