However, according to Hindustan Times, SHO of Itimad-ud-Daula police station, Uday Veer Malik confirmed the incident but added that the man, believed to be mentally unstable, was collecting milk to feed the stray dogs.
"The man (50) lives under the Ram Bagh flyover and sometimes moves to temple nearby. He collects food and other edibles to feed dogs and on Monday morning had collected milk to feed the dogs," Malik told the media.
"The man was not collecting milk for himself but for feeding the dogs after a milkman on bike slipped and milk was spread on road," he added.
