Akash Gowda, son of Nagamani, a resident of 18th Cross, Ramanuja Road is the injured person. The incident took place while he was returning home from work on his two-wheeler. 

When he neared K.R. Police Station, a pack of 15 dogs attacked him suddenly and in a bid to escape from the pack of dogs, he hit a barricade, lost balance and fell down resulting in him suffering a fracture on his left hand.

Members of Karnataka Praja Party (Raitha Parva) led by Founder and State President B. Shivanna met the injured and extended financial help.
