New Delhi, Jan 9: Shocking transcripts of the telephonic conversation between the militants, who launched the attack in Srinagar, and Pakistani handlers have surfaced in the media.
Junaid, a Pakistani handler of the Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, is heard saying the the 22-hour attack has had a 'good impact' on reviving the issue of Kashmir.
"You have breathed life into a dead horse. Your sacrifice and courage will have a good impact on the movement in Kashmir. And the Kashmir movement will once again get direction and importance. It has really had a good impact," the handler is quoted as saying in an Indian Express report.
The frequent calls from the handlers were aimed at motivating and instructing the terrorists carrying out the attack.
In a Jan 6 phone call, which lasted from 9:05 pm to 9:14 pm, Pakistani militant Abu Qari is reportedly heard saying, "Hard work is paying off... these people are now hiding. If only they come out, we can shoot them in the head."
However, the Pak handler asks him to stretch the attack through the night and the whole day on Thursday, Jan 7.
After the Indian operations against the terrorists began, the terrorists are told to shoot the armymen in the head. The handlers urge the militants to survive the night and continue to attack in the daylight.
"Shoot them in the head. Wait for daylight, then start your fight again," Saifullah is quoted as saying.
Following this, the Pakistani militant is killed in operations and Kashmiri militant Usman carries forward the fight.
"By the grace of Allah, Qari sahib has attained martyrdom. He will soon breath his last," Usman said.
However, the tone of the voices on was much more subtle on Jan 7 than the spirit on Jan 6, said the media report.
