JAMMU: Investigations into the Nagrota encounter case have revealed that the four slain Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists were in constant touch with their handlers in Pakistan.
According to sources, investigating agencies retrieved some text messages, suspected to have originated from the terrorists’ handlers in Pakistan, from the mobile phones recovered from the truck in which they had been travelling.
One text message shared with the media reads, “Kahan phnche, kya soorte haal hai. Koi mushkil toh nahi (Where have you reached? How are things?. I hope no trouble so far).” The terrorist handling the mobile phone replied briefly: “at 2 o’clock”.
Besides a huge haul of arms and ammunition, the security forces had recovered Pakistan-made digital mobile radios and mobile handsets, model MPD-2505, shoes manufactured in Pakistan, a wireless set, a GPS device and Pakistani SIM cards.
Sources said a guide is believed to have brought the terrorists to the Jammu-Pathankot highway from where they boarded a truck. The investigating agencies have launched a manhunt for the guide.
The sources added that Karachi-manufactured medicines and other items found on the slain terrorists also suggest Pakistani involvement. Read from source….
