The development has been described by security agencies here as serious because mobile phone towers are present throughout the length and breadth of Jammu and Kashmir.

If the misuse of these towers for militant activities in Sopore has not been a one-off incident, the security forces could be facing a major challenge in the coming days to break the communication network of guerrillas, sources said.
