Keonjhar, Dec 15:

A five-month-old baby boy sustained critical injuries and was hospitalised after being mauled by a stray dog in Odisha’s Keonjhar district today.


The victim, identified as Sibana Munda of Naibuga village under Bamebari police station in the district, was attacked by two stray dogs when the infant was sleeping on the verandah of the house.

The child was critically injured and admitted to Jhumpura primary health centre. As his condition deteriorated, he was later shifted to Keonjhar district headquarters hospital from where he was referred to Sishu Bhawan in Cuttack.

It may be recalled here that a four-year-old boy had died after being attacked by dogs in a similar way in Puri district on December 1.
