A sanitation worker of the GHMC was seriously injured in a stray dog attack in the limits of Banjara Hills circle on Monday.
According to the information obtained from the sanitation wing officials, Rameshwaramma, allotted to the Anand Nagar area, was going about her duty sweeping the roads in the early hours on Monday, when the dog attacked her.
