Guntur: A three-year-old girl was mauled to death when a pack of stray dogs attacked her at Pinneli village under Macharam Mandal in Guntur district on Friday.
She has been identified as Sheik Shahpura. Locals said the incident occurred when Shahpura was playing with another girl near her home.
Though the girl tried to resist, there was no one at the spot to save her.
Locals noticed the girl lying unconscious and rushed her to the local hospital, where the doctors declared her dead on arrival.
“We are unable to understand, who should be blamed for the death of my daughter. My daughter became a victim of stray dogs menace because local bodies failed to control the population of the canines,” said family members of the deceased.
Later police reached the spot and shifted the body to hospital for post mortem. Police have registered a case and investigation is on.
