In a similar incident last June, the Punjab police had arrested a man whose dog had attacked a boy selling toys in a family park in the city’s Iqbal Town.
In a video that went viral on social media, the boy was seen in bloodied clothes after the attack near Lahore’s Moon Market as people tried to help him while the owner of the dog tried to keep the canine away.
When some of the bystanders attempted to assist the little boy to stand, he fell back down, crying out in pain.
