Devices used by 4 Jaish terrorists help India solve January 31 terror attack
The communication devices used by the four Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorists killed at the Ban toll plaza in Jammu on November 19 have provided a vital clue to establish that Pakistan was also behind a similar infiltration by from the same group banned on January 31. 2020, people familiar with the matter said.
On January 31 this year, Indian security forces shot dead three Jaish terrorists near the same toll plaza and arrested three ground workers after the early morning encounter. Among those arrested was the truck driver, Sameer Ahmed Dar.
Dar was the first cousin of Adil Dar, the suicide bomber who crashed his explosives-laden Maruti Eeco car into a CRPF bus in Pulwama on February 14, 2019, killing 40 CRPF staff members.
Investigations into the November 19 Nagrota encounter have revealed similarities beyond the communication devices used by the two Jaish terrorist groups and firmly establish that the deep state of Pakistan uses Jaish to infiltrate India from terrorist camps. in Shakargarh across the border from Samba, a security official said.
The four terrorists, who died on November 19, had entered India through a 200-meter tunnel dug from the Pakistani side.
What has surprised the Indian researchers is the engineering detail that was used for the construction of the tunnel in Pilar 189 that was used by the Nagrota attackers to reach the collection point in Jatwal, 12 km from the international border.
The tunnel, obviously built with the help of the Pakistani Rangers, is 200 meters long with enough room for terrorists to walk and cross the border. The tunnel is 40 meters long at the entry point on the Pakistani side.
“The Shakargarh Jaish camp is a place where trained Jaish jihadists up to Peshawar and Bahawalpur gather to rush into India for terrorist attacks. The Shakargarh lump is in India’s sensitive chicken neck area and is vital to national security, ”said a senior official.
The security officers, who compared the communication devices used by the terrorists killed on November 19, found many similarities with the devices used by the terrorists intercepted in January this year.

Garmin Etrex 20X GPS device
In both incidents the same type of handheld device was used to mark the infiltration route. Investigators have also observed that both GPS devices were damaged by the terrorists in a manner similar to how their Pak handlers had taught them.
The same frequencies recovered from LMR sets
This means that the communication devices used by the Pakistani manipulators are the same.
