Dogs are always going to be man’s best friend! The recent incident of Jammu and Kashmir is proof of that.
A landslide hit Jammu-Srinagar highway near milestone 147 last night. The CRPF personnel of 72nd Battalion were tasked for rescue operations.
With the help of CRPF sniffer dog called Ajaxi, they rescued a man trapped throughout the night after the landslide struck. The man got buried under the debris and if the sniffer dog didn’t help find the man out, he wouldn’t have survived another day.
The man was rescued and then rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.
