The two German Shepherds that attacked a lawyer in Karachi last month will be “euthanized”, according to a compromise agreement between the dogs’ owner and the victim.

Rights activists call the agreement between Humayun Khan and Mirza Akhtar Ali Advocate preposterous.

As per reports, Khan’s dogs attacked the lawyer when he was out on a morning walk. The CCTV footage of the incident showed the two dogs attacking the Mirza Akhtar as he helplessly attempted to defend himself.


Mirza Akhtar “agreed for the sake of Allah [to] forgive Humayun Khan”, reads the agreement between the two parties.

“The two dogs involved in the incident will be euthanised/put down by a veterinarian immediately. Any other such dogs that Humayun Khan has, he shall give them away,” states one of the conditions of the agreement.

The agreement between the two parties further states that Humayun will tender an “unconditional apology” to Mirza Akhtar for the “hurt and injury caused to him”.

Another condition states that the dog owner will register any other dogs with the Clifton Cantonment Board (CBC) and not allow them to come on the street unless they are with a “properly trained handler.”

The agreement concludes on a clause that Humayun will donate Rs1 million to a local animal shelter, ACF Animal Rescue.

The case was registered at the Darakhshan police station and Humayun was granted a bail before arrest while his employess were in police custody.
