Surgical Strikes on Pakistan – How “Dog & Leopard” Strategy” Fooled Pakistan?

The surgical strike on terror launch pads by the Indian Army remains highly controversial, especially in Pakistan. Even the Indian opposition parties have questioned the Indian Surgical Strikes on Pakistan and demanded a proof. However, a senior Indian Army official has put the speculations to rest by stating that Indian Army used leopard’s urine and excrement to confuse the dogs while carrying out surgical strikes on terror launch pads deep in Pakistan. 

Surgical Strikes on Pakistan: Yes It Happened

Lt Gen Rajendra Nimborkar, who served as the brigade commander in Nowshera sector in Jammu and Kashmir, had studied the biodiversity of the area minutely. “While in the sector, we had experienced that leopards often attack dogs in the areas. To save themselves from the attack, dogs prefer to stay in the locality during the night,” Nimborkar told Indian TOI.

“While planning the operational strategy, we were aware of the possible dogs barking and charging while crossing villages on the route. To counter it, our troops carried leopards’ urine and excrements. They used to spray it outside the village. This worked well and the dogs left them alone,” he said.

Nimborkar said the Army had maintained highest secrecy. “Then defence minister Manohar Parrikar had told us to execute the operation in a week. I had discussed this with our troops a week in advance but didn’t reveal the exact location. They came to know about it a day prior to the attack,” he said.

To execute the operation, Nimborkar said, we had chosen early morning. “We had identified the terrorists’ launch pads. We had studied their timings and got to know that 3.30 am was perfect to attack. Before that, our troops had to reach a safe location. They had successfully crossed difficult terrains and minefields. They destroyed three pads and killed 29 terrorists,” he said. Post operation, Nimborkar said the surprise factor had stunned the Pakistan army’s military leaders.
