dog attack
A two and half-year-old girl was mauled to death by stray dogs while she was playing outside an under construction apartment building at Gayatri Nagar.

According to police, the victim and her sister were attacked by two dogs while they were playing at the construction site where the children's father, a native of Chhattisgarh, has been working. The incident took place on April 12. The family originally from Chhattisgarh had shifted to Hyderabad five months ago for livelihood.

Police said the sisters were playing on the road when the two stray dogs attacked them. The child was rescued and taken to a local hospital. However, due to the severity of the injuries, she was referred to another government hospital here, where she was declared dead. A case was registered and investigation is on, they said.
