Even as this topic was being discussed at mutiny another victim succumbs to the menace called stray dogs. And this time the victim is all of four years, a toddler who went out to play with his friends but was killed by wild street dogs. Manju was playing hide-and-seek with his friends when the dogs attacked him and caught him in their jaws and dragged him across the open ground. He was spotted by his neighbours and rushed to Manipal Hospital late last night. Doctors battled for his life close to nine hours but could not save the kid.
