A statue has been made of a dog that helped the police crack as many as 49 cases in India. Tinki, the brilliant German Shepherd which was enjoying the status of the Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) with the Muzaffarnagar district police of Uttar Pradesh state, had died in November last year after battling health complications. The eight-year-old super dog was a member of dog squad and an asset for the police.
As a tribute, a statue of Tinki was unveiled at the Police Line in Muzaffarnagar district on Saturday in the presence of senior police officials. The statue was unveiled by senior dog handler Sunil Kumar. The Uttar Pradesh police also paid rich tributes to the super dog with a separate tweet. “Immortalising memories-ASP Tinki, a detective par excellence who solved 49 cases with Muzaffarnagar police left us for her heveanely abode in 2020. As a remembrance of her stellar contribution, her statue was unveiled by her dog handler in the police lines,” tweeted UP Police. According to the police, the German shepherd was recruited in the Muzaffarnagar police force in 2014 after her formal training with the National Training Centre for dogs at the BSF Academy in Gwalior.
