The unfortunate incident reportedly took place in the evening when Mrs Sushila was alone at home. She was later rushed to the hospital after her son found her lying in a pool of blood. Though she was declared dead due to excessive loss of blood owing to her serious injuries.

The post-mortem report reveals that over 12 severe injuries were found on Tripathi’s body on the neck and the abdomen part.

“At around 6 am, they heard dogs barking and Sushila crying out for help when she was attacked. We rushed to their house but it was locked from the inside. When the woman’s son reached the house, he opened the door and found the victim severely injured”, a neighbour was quoted saying by news daily India Today.

The instance has caused panic among locals, who claimed that the dog has stayed with the family for past 3 years and was never seen getting violent. They further said that the family mostly used to keep the dogs inside.
