    During the riots there was a famous Great Dane too. I am forgetting his name.

    Rest in Peace Zanjeer. Go to doggy heaven and relax now!

    In memory of Zanjeer

    Booklet on police dog who helped investigate ‘93 Mumbai blasts to be published in city

    Gitesh Shelke


    Zanjeer died in November 2000 Zanjeer, the police dog who brought fame to the Mumbai bomb detection and disposal squad (BDDS), will soon have a 40-page booklet released in his memory on his death anniversary, November 16. Born in January 1992, one-yearold Zanjeer had grabbed the limelight after detecting and identifying RDX and different types of bombs and rifles in investigations after the 1993 bomb blasts that shook Mumbai.

    He died seven years later, on November 16, 2000. City-based labour union leader and a dog lover Dilip Mohite told Mirror that Zanjeer’s detection was one of the best in the world and needed to be documented. “We observe his death anniversary every year by organising a commemoration in Mumbai but this year, we decided to publish a booklet dedicated to him,” Mohite told Mirror.

    In his short, eight-year life span, Zanjeer found 3,329 kg of RDX, 57 crude bombs, 18 live bombs, 249 hand grenades, 600 detonators, 25 AK-47 rifles and more, in all sorts of detections.


    Mohite will collate the booklet For the booklet, Mohite and his friends collected the astute canine’s information from the state Criminal Investigation Department’s (CID) dog training centre at Shivajinagar, BDDS Mumbai, his handlers and other sources.

    “His life will be available in information and photographs that few have seen before,” said Mohite. He added that a publishing house has already been contacted and several copies of the booklet are set to be printed.

    Apart from Zanjeer’s life, the booklet will also have information about other dogs who have excelled in police service, dog training centres in the state, contacts of veterinary practitioners, information on how to train dogs, and a number of hostels available for ‘dog-sitting’.
