A mentally ill man who was buried alive in a landslide was rescued by troops using a bomb-sniffing dog, Indian military chiefs revealed. 

Pradeep Kumar, who was known in the Jammu-Kashmir region for wandering along a highway, was buried there overnight Tuesday after heavy rains triggered a landslide.

An army unit patrolling the road the next day along with a sniffer dog named Ajaxi discovered Kumar, and managed to dig him out.

The scene shows the soldiers working to free Kumar, who appears dazed.

Kumar was taken to hospital after being dug out, where he is now being treated. Ajaxi and her handler were given awards for their work in finding him

Army units were brought in to clear the route, which is the only all-weather highway that links Kashmir with the rest of India.

Ajaxi was awarded a commendation disc for her work, along with her handler and their commanding officer who called for help.
