    They have spent more than a thousand crores of rupees on IED but not made indian Army's northern command their Guru.Nowhere else in the world,they would get a better tutor on IEDs.

    I will follow up on that information.

    Unfortunately, one of the first article that turned up was this.

    WGE,

    It is worth checking up as to how the IA avoids IEDs and detects the same.

    Nonetheless, it is good that the US has made good progress in detecting the IEDs in Afghanistan.

    These methods should become a part of the training of all US troops whether or not they are deployed in areas where there is an IED threat and should never be forgotten. They are lessons learnt in blood and death!

    This is indeed news to me. This practice needs to be rooted out immediately.
