A 53-year-old woman has lodged a complaint against her neighbour who allegedly let loose his dog to attack her outside her residence in East Delhi's Shahdara, police said on Monday.
The woman sustained injuries on her waist and legs in the attack that took place on Saturday, they said.
The complainant, Suman Mahajan, and her neighbour, Kuldeep Rawal, were embroiled in a property dispute, the police said.
In her complaint, Ms Mahajan said, "I was going to a temple around 8:40 am on Saturday and saw my neighbour with his dog. He came in front of me and unleashed his dog. The dog ran towards me, jumped on my right leg and bit me. It also attacked me with its nails on the left leg and waist."
The woman was rescued by her parents who came out of the house after hearing the commotion. She was rushed to the Guru Tegh Bahadur Hospital, the police said.
She was discharged the next day after preliminary examination, they said.
