Srinagar: Making subsequent headway in the Delhi High Court blast that claimed 11 lives and left several injured last year, the investigative agencies have found certain leads that links the terrorist activity with cross border LoC trade.

Studying the remains of the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) used for the explosion, the officials investigating the case have found that the same IED, circuit and three-battery remote were used twice in Jammu and Kashmir blast. They claimed that similar three batteries remote was used to activate the IED in the bomb blast that killed one of the Army Major on Srinagar-Jammu national highway.
