NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court has directed the central government to take a decision, within three months, on banning dangerous dog breeds.The direction came on a petition, filed by law firm Legal Attorneys & Barristers, alleging that certain dog breeds had been categorised as ‘dangerous’ and and are banned in several countries.

The Centre informed the court that a crucial decision in this regard will be taken within the next three months. Earlier, the petition related to this was forwarded to the concerned department for speedy disposal. However, the petition was filed again pointing out that the authorities did not take necessary steps.

During the hearing, the court also brought up the need to promote local dog breeds. “Indian breeds need to be taken care of. They are far sturdier. They don’t fall sick as often [as other breeds] since they have acclimatised. Today, we are vocal for local,” the High Court said.

The petitioner demanded that the incidents of dog bite deaths across the country are on the rise and immediate action should be taken to mitigate the risk.
