“As Rizwan was handing over the parcel to the customer, the pet dog of her family, a German Shepherd, rushed out of the house and pounced on him. Out of fear of being attacked, Rizwan made an attempt to escape by running for safety. But the dog chased him and he jumped from the third floor of the apartment,” Narender said.

Rizwan fell on the ground and suffered injuries. Meanwhile, Shobhana, along with other neighbours, rushed to his rescue and shifted him to the NIMS for treatment. He is still unconscious and his condition is said to be critical,” the inspector said.

Following a complaint from Rizwan’s brother Mohammed Khaja on Thursday evening, the Banjara Hills police booked a case under Section 336 (causing injuries due to negligence) against Shobhana. The case is under investigation.
