A female tourist was attacked by a cow at Jagdish Chowk on Tuesday evening. The woman’s hand got severely injured due to this attack. As per eye witnesses, the cow suddenly got aggressive and started running behind the female tourist who hails from Punjab. The woman was moving around Jagdish Chowk with her family and seeing the cow coming towards her, she ran for safety.
The incident happened near Asind ki Haveli. The cow attacked the tourist from Punjab. The shopkeepers of that area somehow managed to save the woman from the cow but her hand suffered injuries in this attack. The woman was horrified and was provided shelter in one of the shops. Later she was rushed to a private hospital.
Stray animals have become a major issue in the city. There have been too many cases of animal attack especially in the tourist areas where these animals are in great numbers. Cows and bulls can commonly be seen in tourist spots like Jagdish Chowk, Delhi Gate, Hathipole and Gulab Bagh. Administration needs to tackle this issue at war-footing.
