In a fascinating news, a UP-based police dog ‘Johny’ recently solved a “blind murder mystery” in less than 48 hours, by tracing the accused who was 22 km away from the scene of crime. The incident came to the fore after the UP police lauded Johny, a German Shephard, on its social media. The case is that of Durvesh Kumar’s murder. The 15-year-old was murdered and his body was buried in a farm.
“Saluting Johny, our #K9 officer who played a ‘claw-some’ role in solving a blind murder mystery of a minor in Kasganj within 48 hours. Not only did the ace detective reach the killers but tracked a looted tractor parked 22 kms away,” UP police tweeted, sharing a video of Johnny surrounded by cops narrating Johnny’s successful efforts in closing the case.
A crucial part of UP’s dog squad, Johny uncovered what looked like a “blind murder mystery”. The German Shephard led the cops to the teen’s accused, and also helped in the recovery of the victim’s tractor, mobile and cash.
For the extraordinary feat, Johny’s squad team was rewarded with Rs 25,000 by the UP Superintendent of Police.
Johny’s incredible achievement comes days after Indian Army’s assault dog Zoom passed away earlier last week after being critically injured in an anti-terrorist operation.

Johny’s incredibly feat comes days after ‘Zoom’, the Indian Army’s assault dog, was killed after taking two critical bullet wounds during an anti-terrorist operation in Srinagar.
