Ayodhya mastermind had big terror plan for I-Day: Police

(The Times of India) JAMMU: The slain Jaish-e-Mohammad militant believed to be the Ayodhya attack mastermind had a “big terror plan” for Independence Day with mobile and satellite phones, explosives and fuse wires used for making cellphone bombs recovered from Saturday’s encounter site here, police said.

JeM ‘divisional commander’ Kari Saifullah Aktar had also learnt driving from a training institute in Narwal and done a recce of sensitive areas, including the army camp, “as possible targets”, police intelligence officials said on Monday.

An admission card of the institute besides 13 SIM cards (used and unused), several mobiles and a satellite handset, fuse wires and explosive substances were found in Maqsooda Begum’s house, one of three hideouts Akhtar changed in the past month, they said.

“What was the need for so many SIM cards? We think these could have been used for making cellphone bombs to target VIPs during the Independence Day function here,” they said.

They said the SIM card data analysis revealed a long list of contacts with girls in Delhi, Mumbai, Ranchi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Patna, Aligarh and the northeastern states as well as web-contacts.

The satellite phone data showed 102 calls to Sialkote, Islamabad, Muzaffarabad, Kotli, Abbotabad in Pakistan and PoK.

The security agencies have, however, been unable to get any “vital information” from interrogation of those arrested – Maqsooda Begum (a teacher in whose house the encounter took place), Zahira Kouser and H A Sidiqqi and injured militant Zafar, they said.
