The youngster is abruptly attacked by the dogs as they follow him in the video, and as a result, he is seen tumbling to the ground.
“When the dogs attacked the boy, it appeared that he was holding a pouch containing some food”, a Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) official said.
An event that happened on Sunday in the Amberpet neighbourhood was captured on CCTV. The child had travelled to the area with his father, who worked at an auto showroom.
