A large number of residents gathered after the incident and demanded action by the police and civic bodies to ensure protection against stray dogs.

The protesting residents said the civic body had failed to sterilize and vaccinate the dogs.

Vinod Sharma, a resident, said the dogs had gone feral and were a huge threat to children.

“People keep feeding these dogs. The dogs have become aggressive and there is an incident every two months. Our children play in the area. We keep flagging our worry but no action is ever taken,” Mr Sharma said.

Earlier this year, the Supreme Court had upheld a Delhi High Court order that allowed residents to feed stray dogs in their colonies. It had earlier put the High Court order on pause, on grounds that it could end up worsening the stray dog problem.
