Dushyant Dave, the senior lawyer assisting Supreme Court as an amicus curiae in the case wherein the judges are deciding on steps to control the stray dog feels that nearly four lakh stray dogs in the Capital are an eyesore and urgent measures were called for to remove them from the streets. “In Delhi there are hundreds and thousands of stray dogs. Several persons are getting bitten every day. They must be removed. Recently there was also an incident where a little girl who was hiding at a place to escape from a dog which was chasing her, got raped,” Dave submitted to a bench of Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Prafullah Chandra Pant.
