Sandeep Anand, a resident of Sector 17, Dwarka, was returning home from Sector 3 on Saturday morning when he had a light collision with a cow crossing the road. He said that as he was approaching the signals of sector 13/14, a group of cows suddenly came on the road. Sandeep could not see one of the cow due to its black colour and therefore collided with her.

It was a scary moment for me as all of a sudden the cow moved from one direction to another and I couldn’t see her. Then two-three more cows came and crossed the road. This is dangerous for traffic.” said Sandeep. “Yesterday three-four cows were sitting in the middle of the road in front of Bhagat Singh Apartments in sector 14 which created problem for the traffic,” he added.

The subject of stray animals like cow, goat, bullock etc has been a topic of discussion and concern in the community of Dwarka. Be it a park, main road, market area, dhalao or even garbage dumping area, such stray animals are a common sight these days. People are sharing photographs in their Whatsapp groups with location and asking the authorities, especially South Delhi Municipal Corporation, to take action on the subject.

A resident of Sector 22 and member of Dwarka Forum Reunion, CK, said that those animals must be captured and sent to their proper place. He wrote the issue with photographs in his WhatsApp groups which has authorities as members. He asked the officials to take action against the people who leave these animals in open.

People said that South Delhi Municipal Corporation must act immediately before any incident happens on road due to such stray animals. Leader of the House, SDMC, Kamaljeet Sehrawat said that the officials have been directed to look into the matter and do the needful.
