Probe into banned transmission equipment found in Kutch

Probe into banned transmission equipment found in Kutch

The security agencies in Gujarat began investigations into a suspected use of banned transmission equipment in the border district of Kutch.

The agencies reportedly intercepted suspicious signals from a transmission equipment they believe to have been made in West Asia.

The security agencies were perplexed as the equipment in question is banned in India but used in neighbouring Pakistan.

Makrand Chauhan, Superintendent of Police (West Kutch), on Tuesday said the investigation was being carried out with regards to the intercept as well as use of banned satellite phone.

“I cannot reveal anything more at this juncture for security reasons,” he was quoted to have said.
He also refused to divulge the location of the intercept.

The incident assumes significance in the wake of ongoing alert in the state following last month’s intelligence inputs regarding infiltration by a group of terrorists via sea route to carry out terror strikes in the country.
