The Belgian Malinois that helped in the killing of Al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden will now help Indian Army. According to the sources, some of the Indian Army units have these dogs, but further discussion is being done in order to ensure that other units get these dogs as well.

As of now the K9 unit of the ITBP has these canines in their team. These teams guard high altitude regions. Other Elite units of the Indian Army will soon get the canines in their team. Even the Maharashtra police wrote to the Director-General of Police (DGP) and designated department. They asked for the department to give them these canines for Naxal-hit areas.

The sources suggested that these canines will mostly be used for urban warfare. Certain operations that need buildings and other major areas to be searched will get help from the Belgian Malinois canines. Other teams where their operations are being carried out in jungles will also get assistance from these dogs. The dogs are now being trained to carry out such searches.
