Srinagar, Mar 16: The body of 10-year-old Omar Farooq of Zaina Kadal who slipped in Jhulem when chased by rabid dogs couldn’t be traced for the third consecutive day Wednesday even as the River Police continued to look for him in the muddy waters.
“There’s still no trace of the boy…We think his body could be spotted soon because after 72 hours it often floats on the water surface,” SP North Shokat Shah who has been personally monitoring the operations told Greater Kashmir.
He said some 30 cops had been put to work.
Meanwhile, the locals accused the district administration of being callous towards the incident.
“Why weren’t the services of Navy’s scuba drives called in? Why didn’t the officials from the civil administration remained stationed at the spot?” the Shahr-e-Khaas locals argued.
Meanwhile, reports said students of Shahr-e-Khaas area took out protest rallies asking the government to kill the stray canines, the population of which is over one lakh in Srinagar alone.
The students accused the coalition government of “being callous towards the safety of humans but more concerned towards dogs.”
