Srinagar: Army on Friday paid rich tribute to its canine warrior ‘Zoom’, who succumbed on Thursday to gunshot injuries received during an encounter in Anantnag district earlier this week.

“In a solemn ceremony at Chinar War Memorial, Badami Bagh Cantonment here, Chinar Corps commander, Lt Gen ADS Aujla, and all ranks paid homage to the gallant soldier,” Srinagar-based PRO Defence Col Emron Musavi said.

“During the operation at Tangpaw in Anantnag, Zoom played a key role in not only identifying the precise location of the terrorists but also in disabling one of the terrorists,” he said, adding however that in the process it suffered two gunshots.

The canine was subsequently immediately evacuated to Army Veterinary Hospital in Srinagar, where it died on Thursday.
