Ruby had joined the police's bomb disposal squad in June 2009. She had played major role in detecting around 41 cases during her stint with the squad. "One of her major detections was a brutal murder case in Khar East in 2015, in which she helped us to reach culprits by just smelling a slipper," police said in a video posted on its official Twitter handle, in honour of Ruby.

Ruby was suffering from carcinoma, a kind of cancer. She had undergone an operation in February and was provided radiotherapy treatment for six times to overcome the deadly decease, a senior police official said.

The Doberman was laid to rest with state honours at the hospital on Sunday evening in the presence of senior Mumbai Crime Branch officers and the entire unit of the city police dog squad.

Sanjay Saxena, joint commissioner of police, crime, said, "She was one of the best dogs in the squad. Her death is a huge loss." When contacted, her handler Navnit More said, "We are extremely sad that she is no more with us. The entire squad will miss her."
