GPS tracks the source of Gurdaspur firing, to Pakistan

|July 28, 2015 0

MUMBAI, INDIA: A day after terror struck the Gurdaspur district of Punjab, information technology has opened by new avenues into the investigations.

Hindustan Times quoted sources as saying that the GPS sets contained recordings of coordinates from 10.51pm on July 21, when the terrorists were in the Narot-Jaimal sector of the border with Pakistan.

After July 21-22, the GPS sets were switched off. The sets have details of coordinates taken on Monday morning.



Meanwhile, The Indian Express has quoted unnamed government sources as saying that the investigating team found Global Positional Sets (GPS) from the slain gunmen which showed that the terrorists may have begun their operation from the Shakargarh area of Pakistan.

According to the sources quoted in IE, forensic analysis of the GPS sets sent to Delhi revealed that the team of terrorists had left from a safe house in Gharot, a village near Shakargarh in Pakistan, crossed a tributary of the Ravi river and then went to the village of Bamial in India.

“Deeper examination of the GPS sets is underway. An initial appraisal by the security forces suggests that the ultras were pushed into India from Pakistan in Narot-Jaimal sector on the night of July 21-22,” a source told HT.

It must be recalled that seven people including a senior police officer, three home guard personnel and three civilians, were killed in the attack.
