DADU: Stray dogs bit nine children in Jatia area in Shahdadpur town on Saturday but they could not receive required treatment as the nearest government hospital had no vial of anti-rabies vaccine to administer them.

The government health facility in Shahdadpur asked the children’s parents to take them to Hyderabad as the hospital lacked the vaccine.

The parents protested against the hospital for failing to arrange the vaccine and referring their children to Hyderabad without providing ambulance to carry them.

They said that they were poor and did not have any means to take their loved ones to Hyderabad.
