Srinagar, Mar 11: Expressing serious concern over the increasing population of dogs in Srinagar City, the Srinagar Municipal Safaiwalla and Mashkees Workers’ Union has suggested sterilization of dogs to overcome the menace.
The Union, at a meeting held here today with its chairman Sheikh Muhammad Sayeed in chair, rejecting as “false the rumours” spread by some elements that the Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir, Dr Asgar Samoon, has ordered the killing of dogs in Valley.
