The High Court on Wednesday directed Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) to furnish details with regard to number of dogs sterilized last month in Srinagar.   

Hearing a Public Interest Litigation by advocate A R Hanjura, a division bench of Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Alok Aradhe directed the SMC to file in this connection the status report by October 19.     

The direction came after Advocate Momin Khan on behalf of SMC submitted that the status report is ready but could not be filed as the officials were engaged on election duty. 

Advocate Khan however told the bench that sterilization of 157 dogs was carried out in September. 

He said the sterilization of dogs is currently carried out at SKUAST veterinary college Shuhama. 

Khan told the court that the sterilization process would speed up as the government has set up Animal Birth Control and Rabies Center at Tengpora Bypass.   

In January this year, the High Court had directed the SMC to inform the court about the time within which the civic body would sterilize all the dogs of the Srinagar city.   

The court had also directed the SMC to take help from Animal Welfare Board for providing expertise for catching the dogs so that they are sterilized and immunized.  

The High Court had also directed Housing and Urban Development Department (H&UDD) to provide required finance assistance to SMC for controlling the menace of stray dogs in the summer capital. 

The Court had said if there are 40,000 to 45,000 dogs in the Srinagar city as indicated by the SMC, it would be inadequate for such an extremely large number of dogs.
