Leopards helped Army in surgical strikes

Leopards helped Army in surgical strikes

The Indian Army did a daring adventure a couple of years ago. In September 2016, troops from Indian army crossed the Line of Control and destroyed militant camps in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir. During this courageous operation, the Army soldiers took the help of some animals.

“They used leopard urine and faeces to keep off dogs during the 2016 surgical strikes in Pakistani territory”, former Nagrota Corps commander Lt Gen Rajendra Nimborkar said in Pune on Tuesday. “There was a possibility of dogs in villages barking at us on the route. I knew they are scared of leopards.

We carried leopard urine with us and that worked and dogs didn’t dare to come forward,” Lt General Nimborkar said. He was speaking in Pune at an awards presentation ceremony organized by the city-based Thorle Bajirao Peshwe Pratishthan. The surgical strikes operation was said to be in retaliation to a militant attack on the army at Uri on September 18 that left 19 soldiers dead.
