The stray dogs took the baby from a double-storey building to a sugarcane field and ate her yesterday, Sub Divisional Magistrate of Modinagar, Pawan Agarwal, said.
The enraged people of the area raised slogans against the Modinagar Municipality.
Mr Agarwal said, "taking cognizance of the death of the baby, orders were passed to the municipality officials to catch the stray dogs. A drive was launched and many dogs were caught after giving them tranquillisers."
