Srinagar: In a shocking revelation made by the Lashkar-e-Taiba militants arrested in Bandipora district, the Islamist terrorist organisation has started 15 day-long special ‘Capsule Course’ to train Kashmiri militants in handling computer operations and latest gadgets to speed up terrorist activity.

The Capsule Course is not only being imparted to the militants in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) but Kashmiri youths are also being recruited.

In order to avoid intelligence agencies getting suspicious about the activity, the young Kashmiri boys are prohibited to cross Indo-Pak border. Instead they are called for training via proper air route along with their passports.

As per the information gathered by the intelligence and investigative agencies, one of the North Kashmiri youths is taking training at Lashkar camp. Still, the exact number of youths have not yet been deciphered.

The brewing conspiracy was revealed by three LeT militants, Ghulam Mohammad Bhatt, Zahur Ahmed and Nisar Ganai who were arrested on January 1, 2012 from Bandipora district. Police recovered matrix sheet, computer codeword diary and other documents from them.

SP Bandipora, Basheer Ahmed Khan informed that Zahur Ahmed used fake passport to travel to Pakistan on May 2011. 
“The militant has taken computer training and learnt skills to operate gadgets related to cyberspace at LeT camp in Pakistan,” the SP informed.

 “After taking training, Zahur returned to Bandipora and contacted militant Ghulam Ahmed Bhatt. Later, he started his operation to recruit Kashmiri youths in the Capsule Course. He provoked young Kashmiri boys to learn computer skills,” said Khan.

Further, the SP mentioned about Nissar Ahmed Darr who has been purposely sent to Lashkar camp for money and Capsule Course.

However, the police officer failed to provide the exact number of youths who are linked with this project. He claimed that investigation is still going on.
