A 4-year-old girl, who was critically wounded when she was attacked by a group of dogs in central Kashmir district of Budgam last month, succumbed in a hospital in Srinagar, official sources said on Sunday.
They said the minor, identified as Mariya Aijaz, was attacked and wounded by a group of dogs on May 14 in her native village in Meeripora, Beerwah in Budgam. “The minor was rushed to a local hospital from where she was referred to GB Panth children hospital in Srinagar in a critical condition,” they said.
However, they said the girl after battling for her life for over a fortnight succumbed on Saturday evening. “After completing all the legal and medical formalities, the body of the deceased was handed over to her relatives for last rites,” they added.
The death of the minor girl comes days after the mauled body of a 4-year-old girl, who was attacked and taken away by a leopard on Thursday, was on Friday morning recovered from a nursery in Budgam. Following the incident, many measures were taken by the administration to avert any further such unfortunate incidents in future.
