A radio set- Digital Mobile Radio manufactured by a Pakistani company called Micro Electronics was found. There were exchanges of text messages allegedly between the terrorists and their handlers, establishing that the terrorists were in touch with their handlers.
These messages also reveal over ground workers were present near the border to guide these terrorists to the waiting truck. The truck was supposed to ferry them to the valley. The infiltration is said to have happened from the Sambha sector.
In one of the messages, one of the handlers allegedly asked, “Kahan per pahunche ho? Kya surate hal hai? Agencies suspect that the handler could be based in the Shakargarh area of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK).”
Also tags on the pants and markings on the shoes of the terrorists establish that they had something to do with Pakistan. There were also medicine strips recovered which show markings of Lahore and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.
