Jari, a 3-year-old canine soldier in the Indian army is a trailing expert and been in service for nearly 2 years now.
Recently, she helped the Indian army troops locate a huge cache of arms and ammunition along with explosives hidden deep inside Panbari Reserve forest under Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC).
It is alleged that the explosives along with the arms and ammunition were hidden by the NDFB-Songbijit (NDFB-S) militants.
Jari and her handler accomplished locating this hidden cache successfully during a joint operation between Indian army, Assam police and Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB).
“She is energetic and full of josh. Jari is a Tracker dog and brilliant with the casting scent methodology that is based on real intelligence and sixth sense of the dog – of all the distractions inside the forest, the smell of elephant dung around, imagine how she focused on just one scent and led her handler to the spot where the weapons and explosives were hidden. This outstanding ability is rare in dogs,” said an Army official from Jari’s unit.
The official added that Jari constantly seeks approval from her handler and most often she gets the approval. She is one of the best army dogs with amazing trailing abilities.
During the operation, the army managed to uncover 20 weapons, 100+ ammunition rounds and around 17 Kgs of explosives.
