Toddler mauled by stray dogs, in hospital 21.10.2014 deccanherald.com
A 17-month-old toddler was grievously injured when a pack of stray dogs attacked him outside his home in Anjana Nagar in JP Nagar 9th Phase, early on Monday.

The victim, Kumaraswamy, after being taken from one hospital to another, is now said to be out of danger.

According to witnesses, Kumaraswamy, son of migrant labourers from Andhra Pradesh, was mauled by around five dogs when he stepped out of his house around 6 am.

Panic-stricken parents Nagamma and Ramesh rushed the bleeding child to Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Referral Hospital in the area. But, due to lack of specialists, the child had to be taken to Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) hospital, off Chamarajpet.

After first aid at KIMS, the child was shifted to state-run K C General Hospital in Malleswaram. Dr Lakshmipathy, paediatrician, K C General Hospital, said that Kumaraswamy is being administered antibiotics and is out of danger.

The Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) has served a show-cause notice on the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike Commissioner M Lakshminarayana asking him why criminal proceedings should not be initiated against him for his failure to resolve the garbage problem in the City and reduce the transportation of trash to Mandur. Confirming this to Deccan Herald, KSPCB chairperson Vaman Acharya said there was pressure from various quarters, including the courts and the Lokayukta, to fix responsibility on authorities which have failed in their duties.

So, we have issued a show cause notice," said Acharya, adding that he signed the show-cause notice a few days ago. While appreciating the ...

Vidyaranyapura Main Road has neither pedestrian crossing nor speed breakers throughout the stretch. Vehicles zoom past the road, making it difficult for citizens to cross. It affects the senior citizens and schoolchildren the most. Vehicles parked at the corners and junctions make the condition worse. The authorities concerned are requested to build a pedestrian crossing at busy stretches such as the 4th Main Road, 3rd Block and the post office junction, to avoid fatal accidents.
