SRINAGAR, Nov 8: Four persons including three women were mauled by a rabid dog in Kangan hamlet of central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district on Thursday.
The rabid dog according to eye-witnesses bit four persons in Wangath area in Kangan. They were later hospitalized for treatment.
The inhabitants who are up in arms against the administration for failing to catch hold of the rabid dog said no one will now muster courage to come out of their houses after the mad dog has bitten four persons in the village.
They said four persons including three women were seriously mauled by the rabid dog. They were later removed to Sub-District hospital Kangan for treatment.
The injured victims have been identified as Masrat Bano, daughter of Abdul Rasheed Mir, Shameema Begum, wife of Noor Mohammad Gursi, Saleema Begum wife of Mushtaq Ahmed Raina and Abdul Rasheed Sheikh son of Ghulam Mohammad all residents of Wangath Kanagan.
Witnesses said despite repeated pleas, the administration has miserably failed to catch hold of the dog who has unleashed a reign of terror in the small hamlet.
They said the single dog who keeps on attacking people has left the district administration red faced.
“This is sheer negligence on the part of the administration which failed to protect public. It depicts the sorry state of the government and seems Priyanka Gandhi policy has been adopted in letter and spirit in Kashmir valley,” said Umer Rehman from Wangath whose relative was mauled.
He said the administration has miserably failed to curb the dog menace in Ganderbal district, who have made the life of inhabitants a virtual hell.
The inhabitants appealed to the government to make some tangible steps to curb the dog menace in the village.
"We will see whether the government does something to mitigate our woes, in case our genuine concerns with regards to our safety were taken for-granted we will hit streets” said Rehman.
