Srinagar : A picture in which a dog is saluting the 15 Corps Commander Lt Gen KJS Dhillon has gone viral on social media.
In the photo, the Chinar Corps Commander can be seen returning the salute to the dog.
Speaking to ANI, Army officials said that the moment was captured on July 01, the first day of the Amarnath Yatra earlier this year.
“While the Corps Commander was going to the holy cave for darshan, around 50 meters before it, Menaka was carrying out his duties. As the Corps Commander reached there, the dog saluted him,” they said.
As per the traditions of the Indian Army, all seniors are supposed to reciprocate the salute and that is why Lt Gen Dhillon also returned the salute.
Retweeting the picture posted on Twitter by a handled @nee_el on the Remount Veterinary Corps Day (RVC), Lt Gen Dhillon tweeted: “Salute to the Buddy who saved many a lives many a times.”
