De-coding Lashkar's terror operations
Vicky Nanjappa in Bengaluru | February 03, 2009 15:54 IST
Investigations have revealed that 26/11 killers communicated with each other using coded language.
During his interrogation, Sabahuddin Ahmed -- the prime accused in the December 28, 2005 attack on the Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru [Images], and the January 1, 2008 attack on the Central Reserve Police Force camp in Rampur, Uttar Pradesh [Images] -- spoke about a code specifically used for satellite phones. The code was 1212.
Rediff.com has learnt that each terrorist, who was part of the 26/11 attack, was given a Thuraya satellite phone. Sabahuddin says none of the operatives was supposed to mention the number assigned to them during conversations.
For instance, if the number is stored as 93418862140 then to get the real number one would have to add 1212 to the number mentioned. In this case, the real number would be 9341863352.
