A high-tech terror hideout used for terror communication with Pakistan was busted by the security forces a day after four terrorists were killed in an encounter at Hyderpora in Srinagar. The terror module was used to communicate with the Pakistani handlers.
This comes on a day the forces took down a Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP)-enabled call centre which was used by the terrorists for communication. The three-structure building worked as a centre for connection between the four important districts of the Kashmir Valley. The materials recovered from the site also indicated that a terrorist who received a fire wound in an encounter was being treated at that very centre.
Speaking to Republic Media Network earlier today, Kashmir Police chief Vijay Kumar said, “The centre was used by local terrorists. The terrorist who got injured during the encounter with security forces here on Sunday was brought to this centre. There is a hideout adjacent to this call centre where terrorists from different regions came. Following the information received by Srinagar police, the police formed a team with Army and CRPF to carry out the bust.”
