She has been admitted to the government-run Hamidia Hospital, police inspector Sanjeev Chouksey said, adding that they came to know about the incident through social media. A policeman was sent to the hospital to enquire about the girl's identity and health. So far, no one has complained to police about the incident, he said. 

“The girl is two to three years' old. She is being given proper medical treatment. She is alright," Bhopal Municipal Corporation Commissioner KVS Choudary told PTI. Denying that the stray dog menace has gone up in the state capital, he said the canine sterilisation programme was paused only for two-three months last year during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. At least 30 to 40 dogs are being sterilised daily since over a month, he said.
