Israeli elite sniffer and attack dogs have been imported to India to add teeth to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's security team, the Indian Telegraph reported.

A 'senior' security official told the paper that 30 "attack dogs, bomb sniffers and chasers," were brought from Jerusalem during the past year.

The official said the dogs were "considered the best in the world in sniffing out explosive booby-traps."


He also added that the canines were also "very effective" in combat.
