Meet Zoom, An Indian Army Dog Who Got Seriously Hurt Fighting Terrorists In J&K
- "Even though he was hurt badly, the brave soldier kept doing his job, which led to the death of two terrorists," they said.
On Monday, security forces and militants fought in the Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir. During the fight, an Army assault dog was seriously hurt.
Late on Sunday night, there were reports that terrorists were in the Tangpawa area of the south Kashmir district. So, security forces set up a cordon and started looking for them.
Officials said that on Monday morning, the army sent its attack dog Zoom into the house where the militants were hiding.
