Stray Dog Attack
In a distressing incident, a four-year-old girl named Kruthika was attacked by a stray dog in the Ramanthapur area of Hyderabad on Thursday. The incident occurred as Kruthika was playing with her friends in front of her house in Ramreddynagar, and the stray dog attacked, biting her face and ear.
Kruthika was promptly rushed to Yashoda Hospital Malakpet, where she is currently undergoing treatment. The family, faced with the financial burden of extensive plastic surgery estimated to cost between Rs 3-3.5 lakh, has appealed for assistance to cover the medical expenses.
This incident adds to a series of heart-wrenching events involving stray dog attacks in Hyderabad and other parts of Telangana this year. In February, a four-year-old boy tragically lost his life after being mauled by a pack of stray dogs.
Very sorry to hear about the incident

Despite municipal authorities implementing new measures to curb the menace of stray dogs following the earlier incident, citizens report that the situation on the ground has shown no significant improvement. Dog bite cases are consistently reported in the state capital and other urban areas, with alarming frequency.
The gravity of the issue was further highlighted when a five-year-old boy succumbed to rabies in Khammam district in March after being bitten by stray dogs. Tragically, on May 19, an eight-year-old boy met a fatal fate near Kazipet railway station in Hanamkonda due to an attack by a pack of stray dogs.
Earlier in April 2022, a two-year-old boy fell victim to stray dogs in the Bada Bazar area of Golconda in Hyderabad, raising concerns about the safety of children in various districts of Telangana.
The recurring incidents of stray dog attacks underscore the urgent need for immediate and effective action by the government and relevant authorities. Citizens are demanding swift measures to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future, emphasizing the importance of prioritizing public safety and addressing the stray dog issue comprehensively.Crime Today News | Hyderabad
