Bengaluru: The horror story of an infant that shocked the nation has exposed an ugly truth. The girl was attacked by a pack of 6 dogs that left her battling for her life with 55 bites on her body.
Documents accessed by NewsX expose an ugly truth, initially it was claimed by authorities that the health department of Bengaluru Municipal Corporation have a shortage of vaccines to treat rabies.
The same organisation was granted Rs 2.5 crore to procure vaccines but this money was spent on stationeries, curtains, tube lights and toilet paper.
Six-year-old Ramya from Anjana Nagar on Magadi Road was playing with her friend in front of her house on May 20 when around 6 stray dogs attacked her.
The neighbours chased away the dogs and admitted Ramya to a private hospital where she was given First Aid and later shifted to Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) for treatment.
It has been learnt that the money allocated for vaccination purposes has been used wrongly for buying other items for management purposes like stationery, lights and toilet paper. Such apathy shown by officials in Bengaluru adds to the plight of locals who battle with the menace of stray and vicious dogs in their vicinities.
