Pakistan set up private servers for terrorists

Srinagar, Oct 9: A private server wh‎ich could be accessed by only 10 persons has been discovered by the National Investigation Agency probing the Udhampur attack.

The server based in Pakistan was exclusive for handlers of the attack and also the foot soldiers who carried out the Udhampur attack at Jammu and Kashmir.


This is a new method that is being used by the terror groups an NIA officer informed.

Private servers are set up by groups such as the Lashkar-e-Tayiba ahead of an attack. After the task is undertaken they close down the server thus making it very difficult to trace.

The NIA during the interrogation of Mohammad Naved found that the members of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba were using these private servers during the planning and execution process.

The Udhampur attack involved a group of 10 members and only‎ these persons had access to this closed group.

The NIA says that such servers come up and disappear.

They are set up specific to each attack. This is one of the major reasons why terror groups have been able to hoodwink the agencies.

There was never any information regarding the infiltration that took place ahead of both the Udhampur and Gurdaspur attacks.

The NIA says that this angle would figure in their soon to filed chargesheet.

Although there is no hope for further information about these servers as they were located in Pakistan the NIA says the information that they have would act as a case study.

We know their modus operandi and enhanced surveillance can be put in place now.
