Security agencies are worried about the use of high-end technology by Lashkar-e-Taiba militants in Rajouri and Poonch, top intelligence, CNN-News18 quoting sources claimed in one of its exclusive reports.
According to them, these militants are equipped with YSMS technology, which was used earlier in deadly attacks of 2016 and 2019.
In a recent meeting of top security officials, the use of YSMS and the problems in tracing militants due to no digital footprint of Very High Frequency (VHF) encrypted messages without data or any telecom operator were discussed.
The officials spoke about how militants are using phones without SIM cards.
These phones are paired to radio sets through Bluetooth to send messages and location details for help to other devices in case of any emergency.
Intelligence agencies are worried about groups of Lashkar militants stationed in Poonch and Rajouri.
According to sources, there are 12 of them who are very highly trained.
They have been distributed into three groups with three guides for local support and recce, the sources added.
They come through safe routes and attack security forces, said the sources. These militants have all been trained by Sajid Jatt of Lashkar, they added.
Their aim is to stage an attack in Jammu and Kashmir during the G20 meeting to be held in a week and create a “26/11-like situation” so the fight can continue for a few days at a time when foreign guests are in J&K, said the sources.
