Gurdaspur, July 29: The GPS retrieved from the dead terrorists revealed horrific details of their motives and plan of action. The three men may have sneaked into India from Pakistan on Sunday night after crossing a tributary of Ravi river.
Suspected to be the members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, the trio had battle fatigues that worked as a camoflage. In fact, the GPS shows that they had entered from the Shakhargarh tehsil of Pakistan and entered India from Tash area along the border.
A government official said that help should be taken from the US to pinpoint the location and further analyze the GPS feed. Interestingly, the militants had two other places in Gurdaspur-Aryanagar and Singowal- marked. Clearly, they had plans to strike two other places too.
The GPS also reveals that they first planted bombs on Amritsar-Pathankot railway tracks and then stole a civilian car to gain access to the police station. An official said,"Around 1kg RDX was used in each of the devices. We have found nine packets of 500 grams near the track. These IEDs did not have a timer and would have blown off under the pressure of the train.
A senior BSF official had said that since the terrorists could not infiltrate through J-K due to tight security, they may choose to infiltrate through Punjab.
