Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): A woman residing in the BHEL area has complained that a shelter home for stray dogs being run illegally in her colony has become a menace for residents. 

Neeru Aadiwal, who lives in Bengali Colony, Habibganj and works at the Kasturba Hospital, visited Collectrate on Tuesday with the complaint. 

She wanted to present her case before the collector at a public hearing.  However, in the absence of the collector, she handed over her written application to the office staff. Neeru told the Free Press that two women Neena and Pushpa were residing with 15-10 stray dogs at their home posing threat to other residents of the colony.

The stray dogs chase children and two-wheelers riders and have bitten many local residents, claimed the complainant.  The middle-aged woman stated that the residents even fear coming out of their homes due to the dogs. Neeru claimed that when she and some others protested, the women assaulted her.

“They slapped and kicked me. I went to the Govindpura Police Station with a complaint but the policemen didn’t take any action,” she claimed. Neeru said that she and other residents want the dogs to be moved out of the residential area for the safety of the residents, especially infants and children. The residents have been complaining  about the stray dog menace since 2019 but no action has been taken yet.
