Early Times Report

Jammu, Aug 2: The brave sniffer dog of the Indian Army, who was recently killed in a gunfight with terrorists in Baramulla was specially trained to carry a camera along for live shooting of the encounters.
Highly placed sources told the Early Times that the two-year-old assault dog by the name of Axel, who was hit around the head by three bullets and killed instantly after being sent to sniff out the terror location, was carrying a special camera along on his back for the operation.
Sources said Axel was specially-trained to carry “back-mounted” camera for the live video footage of the encounter spots to be monitored at control rooms.
Born on June 26, 2020, the Axel as per the sources in the Indian Army, was trained for the counter insurgency operations in particular.
On July 31, minutes before the Army neutralized the lone terrorist in the frontier district, it suffered a loss of its own: Axel.
Officials privy to the operation in Baramulla’s Wanigam said the terrorist was eventually killed. “Axel was dead before it could have been rushed to hospital for treatment,” an official said. The light brown Belgian Malinois, Axel was a casualty in the encounter that lasted for five hours. According to police, a lone terrorist, identified as Akhtar Hussain Bhat, was killed while two soldiers and a policeman were wounded in the encounter.
It’s for the first time in the last few years that a sniffer has been killed in a counterinsurgency operation in the north Kashmir’s frontier district.
Sharing more details about the slain dog, a senior official said Axel had joined the counter insurgency operations in December 2021 and was among the most skilled sniffers in the Army. The GOC had paid glowing tributes to Axel. The killing of Axel was widely mourned with many of the prominent personalities including retired Army officers paying homage to the slain animal on the social media.
