The agreement concluded that Humayun Khan shall make a donation of Rs.1,000,000 to the Ayesha Chundigarh Foundation (ACF) Animal Rescue.

The incident took place last month when a CCTV footage of the incident surfaced on social media which showed that Advocate Mirza Ali Akhtar was walking in Phase 6, Defence Housing Authority neighbourhood, when two dogs darted towards him and tackled him to the ground.

Another man, who appeared to be a caretaker of the dogs, tried hard to separate the animals from Ali but to no avail. The caretaker ran off to find another man and they both then rescued the lawyer from the dogs.

The footage showed the two caretakers left the lawyer injured on the road and took the dogs away. Police registered a case against the dogs’ owner, Humayun Khan, and nominated the two caretakers in the case as well.
