An additional 20 vehicles will be deployed to the existing 30 vehicles for dog catching. The number of sterilisations (of dogs) per day would be increased to 400-450 from the 150 currently, the release said.

The boy was apparently carrying a packet containing some food item when the dogs pounced on him and killed him. The incident was caught on CCTV camera and the footage went viral on February 21 provoking public outcry. In the video clip, the canines were seen suddenly attacking the boy while tailing him, following which he fell down.

He was walking alone. The unrelenting pack of strays kept mauling him even as there was nobody in sight who could come to his rescue. The boy's father, who works as a security guard at a car service centre, had taken him and his 6-year-old daughter to his workplace located in the area.

The victim suffered serious injuries in the attack and was rushed to the hospital by his father and others where he was declared brought dead, Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) officials had said.
