Sniffing Terror Trail: Dino The Lab Gets Special Mention In Nagrota Chargesheet


If it wasn’t for “Dino”, the Army’s highly skilled tracker dog, it would have been difficult for NIA to identify the route taken by three Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists to reach the Nagrota military base on November 28, 2016 after entering India from Jammu border.

In its recently filed chargesheet in the Nagrota attack, in which seven soldiers were killed, NIA has detailed a separate chapter on the role of Dino, a Labrador, who was used by the sleuths during investigation as it was necessary to identify how the three fidayeens from Pakistan reached the attack site with the help of Kashmir-based operatives. The three terrorists were killed by security forces in the counter operation.

The tracker dog sniffed the sock of one of the slain terrorists and started tracking the route from a possible breach near the boundary wall of the base. As he moved further, he led NIA through the bushes covering a distance of about 200-250 metres. Dino further tracked the route taken by terrorists for another 1,000 metres till the national highway. Read more
