Rizwan, an executive working for food delivery app Swiggy, was delivering a parcel to one Shobhana at Lumbini Rock Castle Apartments at Road No. 6, Banjara Hills, when her pet dog, a German Shepherd, allegedly attacked him.
“As Rizwan was handing over the parcel to the customer, a German Shepherd rushed out of the house and pounced on him. Fearing attack, Rizwan attempted to run for safety but was chased by the dog, which made him jump from the third floor of the apartment,” Narender said.
Following his death, the inspector said that a case, which was initially registered under section 336 (causing injuries due to negligence) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) following a complaint from Rizwan’s brother, was changed into section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) against the dog’s owner.
