Chandigarh, January 20
Ahead of the Republic Day parade, Delhi Police have requisitioned the crack K-9 unit of Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force (ITBP) to sanitise and secure the area around India Gate and Rajpath.
ITBP K-9s highly trained and loyal dogs will sniff out explosives and IEDs with zero error to ensure that the ceremony held under a very high threat perception goes off without a hitch.
ITBP is the largest contributor of dog teams to Delhi Police for various assignments for the past one decade. The dogs are trained at ITBP’s National Centre for Training Dogs at Bhanu near Chandigarh.
These dogs form part of ITBP’S K-9 QRT (quick reaction team) that rushes to the assistance of Delhi Police whenever there is a requisition.
All the K9s deployed this year have already had a stint in the counter-insurgency grid and are battle-hardened dogs whose noses miss nothing.
