Gram panchayat, forest department as well as tehsil officials were pressed into action after a pack of stray dogs in Barsana town here mauled a seven-year-old girl to death on Sunday. Speaking to ANI, Ashok Kumar Meena, SP Crime, said, "Gram panchayat, forest dept and tehsil have been directed to catch the stray dogs. All pradhans and villagers have been asked not to leave their kids alone."

However, Kalicharan, the village chief, informed that no administrative officer has come to investigate the matter yet. Seven-year-old Devika was going to her father Bhupsinh with food when she was attacked by the dogs. The incident took place only a few miles away from her house.

The dogs had already killed the minor girl by the time villagers arrived at the site. The girl was found after a few children passing by the same route saw half a dozen dogs devour over a body on the way.
