Four dogs and pup­pies guard the home­less

DNA (Delhi) - - IN-DEPTH -

At the Sarai Kale Khan ISBT night shel­ter, women defe­cate in open. Toi­lets are ei­ther too less or not func­tion­ing at all. And when women go out to defe­cate, they are some­times as­saulted by auto and taxi driv­ers in the area. How­ever, to tackle the prob­lem, the in­mates have adopted and trained stray dogs to guide the women at night and as and when needed, pro­tect them too. “I am poor. I don’t have the money to file FIRs,” said Mi­nakshi, an in­mate. The shel­ter is now home to four stray dogs and sev­eral pup­pies.
