New Delhi, Nov 10: The Indian Army today gifted 20 fully trained military horses and 10 mine detection dogs to Bangladesh Army a gesture to further bridge the bilateral relations between the two nations in general and between the two armies in particular.

These equines and canines were trained by the Remount and Veterinary Corps of Indian Army. The Indian Army has also trained Bangladesh Army personnel for training and handling these specialist dogs and horses.

Indian Army delegation led by Major General Narinder Singh Khroud, Chief of Staff of Brahmastra Corps whereas the Bangladesh Army Delegation was led by Major General Mohammad HumayunKabir, who is Commanding the Jessore based Division.

The presentation ceremony was held at Petrapole- Benapole Integrated Check Post (ICP) on the India – Bangladesh Border. Brig JS Cheema from the Indian High Commission in Dhaka was also present at the event.
India’s partnership with People’s Republic of Bangladesh stands out as a role model in the region for good neighbourly relations. With this gesture the bond which two countries share is expected to grow even stronger.

“The performance of military dogs in Indian Army has been commendable. We are always ready to extend our assistance to a friendly country like Bangladesh in issues concerning security. When it comes to security, the dogs have proven their mettle. The dogs which have been handed over, are extremely effective in mine detection and contraband items,” said Maj Gen Narinder Singh, Chief of Staff, Brahmastra Corps.
