A member of an animal rights NGO was assaulted by residents of a residential society in Ghaziabad over altercation of the issue of street dogs.
A purported video of the incident surfaced on social media, where a group of women are seen beating another woman.
The police stated that the incident took place in the River Heights society.
The residents claimed that due to the recent dog bite case, they decided to nab stray dogs and remove them from society. However, the woman, activist opposed this move. This sparked off an argument between the two groups.
Both sides filed a complaint with the police while police are cross verifying the claims.

The Ghaziabad administration in October 2022 had also passed an order banning a particular breed of dogs as pets namely Pit Bull, Rottweiler, and Dogo Argentino.
