His handlers from the control room asked him to throw grenades at the security forces and also informed him that other cadres of the terror group had managed to sneak into the Valley, mingled with protesters and were fuelling tension in the Valley.
He informed that this Dett is headed by a senior LeT member who provides arms and ammunition as well as other accessories like GPS, night vision devices, compass, grenade launchers, rubber maps, matrix sheets, food packets, dry ration, and medicines, among other things.
