Earlier, 6 years old boy Husnain Bughio, was attacked by 7 dogs in Larkana, inflicting severe injuries at his face.
The boy was taken to Larkana’s Chandka Medical Hospital where doctors refused to treat the child due to severe injuries. Later, he was brought to Karachi for being treated for his face wounds.
Meanwhile, residents of the affected area have asked the government to protect them from stray dogs.
More than 92,000 dog bite cases have been reported across Sindh this year.
The people have been urging authorities to initiate the drive and fix the issue of the stray dogs as it creates fear amongst the children and elders alike. Also, people are demanding a continuous supply of anti-rabies vaccination in hospitals all over the province.
