NIA Says FBI Gave Key Inputs In Pulwama Attack:- The American Intelligence and security service FBI helped the country's National Investigation Agency (NIA) to probe into the deadly Pulwama attacks that shocked the world last year. FBI helped NIA to identify the crucial person who was in touch with the team and the nature of explosives that are used in the blast. The deadly attack killed 30 Army personnel in Jammu and Kashmir last year. NIA spokesperson Sonia Narang thanked FBI for their valuable inputs to nail the accused and find out the nefarious designs of Pakistan which supported several terrorist organizations.
FBI helped NIA to crack the WhatsApp account that is run by Jaish-e-Mohammed spokesperson. The person was in touch with a group that planned and executed the attack. The WhatsApp account was operated by Mohammad Hussain who is based in Kashmir and is traced in Muzaffarabad in Pakistan. The number was registered on the name of Jameela from Budgam. Jameela passed away in 2011. As it is quite difficult to trace the information outside India, FBI helped NIA to crack the case. Some of the deleted pictures of RDX from the WhatsApp account were recovered.
