Operatives planned to use Skype to instill LeT ‘preaching’ among victims

Sources said that the sleeper cell had planned to use Skype for ‘instilling’ LeT’s ‘preaching’ among riot victims.

Speaking to Millennium Post, police officials in Special Cell interrogating arrested LeT operatives, said, ‘Apart from the LeT operatives, the high-end phones were also used by the sleeper cells allegedly active in Muzaffarnagar relief camps. They also communicated with their group members through video-conferencing on several occasions. Also, the riot photographs, including the pictures of the victims, relief camps, were sent by the sleeper cells to the LeT operatives. They further forwarded those images to Abdul Subhan, the key handler of Muzaffarnagar module’.

Subhan has joined LeT in 2001 after which he was arrested by CBI in the same year and was later released in year 2011. Since then, he again joined LeT and became one of the main operative. Presently Subhan is still at large and the investigative agencies have launched a manhunt to nab him.

Reportedly, during interrogation of the arrested terrorists – Shahid and Rashid, and the duo witnesses –Zameer and Liyakat, police sources said, ‘They revealed that they used high-end mobile phones to communicate with each other. Four mobile phone numbers were used to carry out conversation with Javed Baluchi, LeT commander, who is hiding in Pakistan. Out of these four numbers, one is Rajasthan-based, while another is a Haryana based number’.

A well-placed source in the Cell said, ‘The operatives were aware of that they might be caught if they use excessive amount of internet to pursue their terror related activities’. Skype is an application used to make internet calls for free using mobile phones or computer/laptop.

According to sources, the sleeper cell was assigned to recruit emotional vulnerable Muzaffarnagar residents who could be motivated and trained to execute terror strike in Delhi, Haryana and Rajasthan.
