Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray's wife Sharmila has received 65 stitches after she was badly injured when one of their dogs, Bond, bit her face on 18 August.

She had to undergo a surgery and is now recovering in Mumbai's Hinduja hospital.

Bond had attacked Sharmila moments before Thackeray was scheduled to address a press conference at his residence. He rushed to the hospital after the conference.

Doctors in the hospital revealed that the bite was so severe that the dog's teeth almost dug into her bones.

The family has two dogs - James and Bond.
