Nagrota encounter: Slain JeM terrorists were in constant touch with Pakistani handlers

The four terrorists killed in Jammu and Kashmir's Nagrota were in constant touch with Pakistani handlers, evidence have revealed. Police have now recovered a digital mobile radio from the slain terrorists, which have shown some text messages from Pakistani handlers. The handlers, in Shakargarh area of Punjab's Narowal district in Pakistan, had asked the terrorists about their whereabouts and if they have reached safely. The recovered digital mobile radio has been manufactured by a Pakistani company 'Micro Electronics' and QMobile smartphone.

The messages on the DMR set clearly show that the intruding terrorists were in constant touch with their handlers across the border. "Kahan phnche, kya soorte haal hai. Koi mushkil toh nahi," the texts read. 

The agency now suspects the message was sent by a handler in Shakargarh in PoK.

The other evidence includes medicines manufactured in Karachi. The shoes worn by the JeM terrorists were also manufactured in Pakistan. 

In addition, a wireless set and a GPS device have also been recovered.
