Police confirmed that the dogs were euthnised at a veterinary clinic. The owner of the dogs informed police about it.

Akhtar Ali Advocate was walking when two dogs darted towards him. The dogs, in the CCTV footage, can be seen taking a hold of a frightened Ali and tackling him to the ground.
Another man, who appears to be the caretaker of the dogs, tries to separate the animals from Ali but to no avail.
The caretaker runs off to find another man and they both then rescue the advocate from the dogs.
The two caretakers of the dogs, identified as Fahad and Ali, had left the advocate injured on the road and left with the dogs. Police had registered a case against the dogs' owner, Humayun Khan and nominated the two caretakers in the case as well.
Following the attack on the lawyer, a case was registered against the dogs' owner, and an Additional District and Sessions Judge South had issued directives to arrest him.
