The little boy was already standing inside a housing society lift when an older woman walked in with her pet dog on a leash. As the kid moved to the front of the elevator, the dog jumped up and bit the child on the leg.
The boy then immediately reacted with pain and began jumping up and down on one foot. However, the pet owner kept looking at the boy and did not react.
The footage prompted a response from the Ghaziabad Police. They informed that they have registered a case based on the complaint of the parents. They said in a tweet in Hindi that advance legal action is being taken by the Nandgram police station.
