'Operation Golden Nose' launched to prevent terror attack on Parliament
Operation Golden Nose will finish with the end of the Monsoon session.
Delhi: The Ministry of Home Affairs has approved the deployment of crack canine dog teams named 'Operation Golden Nose' to prevent terror attack on Parliament.
As per India Today, even though there are multiple ring security system in place in the Parliament, somebody sneaking in explosives in innocuous articles and placing it in areas like under the tables or in flower pots, cannot be ruled out. In such a case, highly trained crack canines will come into play.
As per the report, even if someone has touched an explosive, that also can be detected by these dogs.
The ITBP has reportedly been requested by the Parliament Security Services (PSS) to deploy their crack K9 units.
ITBP dogs are said to be one of the most highly trained in the world.
The US Navy Seals had selected them to assist in protecting any US President Barack Obama's visit to India last year.
The operation will finish with the end of the Monsoon session and is being supervised by ITBP DIG RC Baijwan.
