Leopard’s urine helped the Indian Army in its surgical strike, says Lt Gen who led the strikes in Pakistan

he Indian Army officer who participated in the 2016 surgical strike inside Pakistan territory said that the troops carried leopard’s urine to scare the dogs during the operations.

n operational strategy, while crossing villages en route, the Indian Army soldiers would spray leopard urine outside the villages. He added that the strategy worked well and the dogs left the teams ‘alone’. The teams thus achieved the much-needed stealth in the risky operation 15 km inside Pakistani territory.View image on Twitter

 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 & that worked & dogs didn’t dare to come forward: Lt General RR Nimbhorkar, Former Nagrota (J&K) Corps Commander on Surgical Strike (11.09)
 Nimbhorkar further added that the Indian Army had studied the pattern of the terrorists operating out of launchpads and zeroed down upon 3:30 am as the appropriate time to carry out the strikes on the terror bases. ‘Three pads’ were destroyed and ’29 terrorists’ were killed in the operation that was lauded by the political leadership.
