A wireless set, medicines made in Pakistan were found in possession of terrorists slain in an encounter in Nagrota on Thursday. The pictures of the radio set- Digital Mobile Radio manufactured by a Pakistani company called Micro Electronics showed an exchange of text messages allegedly between the terrorists and their handlers.

The messages on the DMR set showed that terrorists were in constant touch with their Pakistani handlers when they infiltrated. The exchange also suggests over ground workers were present near the border to guide these terrorists to the waiting truck which was supposed to ferry them to the valley. A preliminary assessment of investigators suggested that the infiltration happened from the Sambha sector.

In one of the messages, the alleged handler asked- kahan per pahunche ho? kya surate hal hai? Agencies suspect that the handler could be based in the Shakargarh area of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK).

Tags on the pants and markings on the shoes of the terrorists also pointed to the Pakistani connection. While the medicine strips recovered show markings of Lahore and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan High Commission official in Delhi has been summoned by the Ministry of External Affairs on this incident. However, two of the terrorists named Rauf Azghar and Qari Zarar are suspected to be the Jaish Commanders who were giving direct instructions to the Nagrota terrorists.

In connection with the situation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also held a review meeting in Jammu and Kashmir with Home and External affairs minister and NSA and said, "Neutralising of four terrorists belonging to Pakistan-based terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed and the presence of large cache of weapons and explosives with them indicate that their efforts to wreak major havoc and destruction have once again been thwarted. Thanks to the alertness of security forces, they have defeated a nefarious plot to target grassroots level democratic exercises in Jammu and Kashmir.”

Agencies suspect that Pakistan is trying to disrupt the proposed DDC elections in Jammu and Kashmir and the four slain terrorists were part of a "big conspiracy."
