New Delhi: The United States has confirmed to India that of the 23 most active terror email accounts operating in the Kashmir Valley, 11 function from Pakistan and four of these were created using mobile phones with Pakistan numbers. Of the remaining, two were created in the US and two others, which show as having been created in India given Pakistani mobile numbers as their alternate contact. This crucial information is part of a 78-page response by the US Department of Justice to a detailed request that home ministry had made to them under the Indo-US Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty since most servers are located in US jurisdiction. All these operatives are suspected Hizbul Mujahideen cadre and much of this information was collected during the probe of suspected HM front, the J&K Affectees Relief Trust. India has already taken up case of HM head Syed Salahuddin, who is in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, with the United Nations. In line with the same policy, this data is now being thoroughly examined to identify these individuals so that an effort could be made to designate them terrorists in the UN as well as in the US and other major countries. At the Indian end, the National Investigation Agency is carrying out the probe. The use of same Pakistani mobile numbers in the contact information is one aspect highlighted in the US report. 'Investigation revealed that mobile number of Pakistan +923008550825 is alternate communication channels for both email IDs khadeksingh@yahoo. com and hsnane10muharam@ yahoo.com. Besides the contents of the chats, India was also provided with the address books of these emails IDs.' Sample the contents in some of the email accounts: April 15, 2014: abdul1452 @gmail.com, belonging to one Abdul Rahim in Pakistan, sent an email to multiple recpients wuth the title 'confidential army report on LET April 2014'. It attached a report with the message, 'Yeh Indian Army ki confidential report hai hamare lashkar-e-toiba aur Mujahideen par. Jarur Dekhe aur Satark rahe.'
