Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Seventy stray dogs were vaccinated in the Musakhedi area on Sunday under the rabies-free city campaign being run by Indore Municipal Corporation. Officials said that the stray dogs were given rabies vaccination by the organisations running the ABC programme. Local residents also cooperated in the campaign.  A similar vaccination drive would be undertaken in other areas of the city too in order to make the city rabies-free.  

Under the campaign, the municipal corporation has begun a survey to identify areas which are hotspots of dog bites. Along with this, area-wise workshops will be organised to spread awareness among citizens.  Municipal commissioner Harshika Singh on February 28 had conducted a meeting of the rabies city task force to make the city rabies free.
