Deputy Commandant of CISF in Delhi, Dr Ramesh Kumar, said "Khoj has become the most expensive dog in CISF's dog squad. The kind of threat Delhi faces, the dog will help to nab assailants laced with explosives."
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) had given the funds to buy the dog.
The Deputy Commandant further said that dogs of Malinois breed can run up to 25-30 kms non-stop. "Their attacking and biting power makes them better competitors," he said, adding that "Khoj will be very helpful in nabbing thieves in Delhi Metro".
