According to an NDTV report, the dogs were being put into jute bags in order to see their ban in the society premises. When an animal-loving resident named Poonam Kashyap raised her voice to oppose the move on the stray dogs, the scenario snowballed and led to a fight.
Reportedly, following several cases of brutal dog attacks in the region, three violent dog breeds — Pit Bull, Rottweiler, and Dogo Argentino — are prohibited from being kept as pets by the Ghaziabad Municipal Corporation.
