A resident of Sector 69 said, “From the past four days, I have been finding a dog dead in my locality every morning. The sanitation workers, who come to pick up the dead dogs, said they have picked three to four more dog carcasses from other parts of the area. On Thursday, too, I found a dog dead under mysterious circumstances in the area park. I have lodged a complaint with police, seeking an FIR against unknown persons for the death of dogs.”
