Sniffer dog helps solve case with almost no clues
The police were reportedly about to give up tracking Ram Niwas who allegedly sodomized and killed the six-year-old boy of Harsh Vihar as there were no apparent clues. However, a sniffer dog Viren helped the investigating teams, leading them to Niwas's workplace. The boy's father, a tea shop owner, said his son left the shop in the evening on 11 August and never returned.
