Two pet dogs in Karachi will be put down after they mauled a lawyer in the posh neighbourhood of Karachi. A report suggested that a ‘death sentence’ is given to two canines after an out-of-court settlement between the injured lawyer and the pet owner. 

During his morning walk last month, senior Advocate Mirza Akhtar Ali was seriously injured, as the two dogs of Humayun Khan mercilessly attacked him. Video of the incident was captured on camera showing the dog jumping on the lawyer and then pushing him on the ground.

As the video went viral, several people condemned the dog owner. According to a report by The Express Tribune, Advocate Mirza Akhtar admitted acquitting the dog owner Humayun Khan on the above conditions. First, he has to give an unconditional apology for the injury caused to him, and second, he will not keep any dangerous or ferocious dogs at his home.

Also, the agreement has been signed by both the defendants and witnesses and presented in court.
