Another terror attack in Valley district of Jammu and Kashmir

June 8, 2018  : ANOTHER TERROR ATTACK IN VALLEY DISTRICT OF JAMMU AND KASHMIR

SITUATION

Terrorists attacked an army patrol party in Haril area of Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir on Friday morning, in a new terror attack. No injuries or casualties have been reported as yet.

This was the fourth infiltration bid to have been foiled since the Ramzan truce on May 17. On May 18, five newly infiltrated terrorists were killed close to LoC in Handwara forest. Even more so, five terrorists were killed after the Army foiled a major infiltration bid in Tangdhar sector on May 26.

This recent terror attack comes a day after two soldiers were injured after terrorists attacked an army patrol party near Line of Control fence in Kashmir’s Keran sector.

CHALLENGE

The security challenge that Jammu and Kashmir are facing now is not news. More and more terrorist attacks are happening in the area. Law enforcement must find a proper way to upgrade their security solutions. Just the same, this terror attack gives precedent for more attacks to occur.

It’s not easy deterring and uncovering terrorist plans. The investigative means at law enforcement’s disposal often fail. The polygraph test or DNA are limited in results. Moreover, they are effective only in limited situations.

So how can local authorities control or prevent these terror attacks and upgrade to a security solution that will prove to be more effective? Is there a security technology that can help eliminate the onslaught of violence in the Kashmir valley region?

WHY BRAIN FINGERPRINTING?

In today’s world, it’s not uncommon to think that technology has advanced so far that it can serve authorities in ways it hasn’t before.

Developed by Brainwave Science to support investigative agencies worldwide, Brain Fingerprinting can distinguish between innocents and perpetrators. It relies on how the brain responds to certain specific stimuli;  Brain Fingerprinting system detects concealed or hidden information in the brain.

Brain Fingerprinting relies on detecting a distinct change in electrical activity when a human brain responds to the sight of familiar stimuli.

In the recent terror attack case, Brain Fingerprinting can aid law enforcement advance the case and quickly gather intelligence. The Brain Fingerprinting test can be conducted on any person of interest and relevant to the attack, victims, witnesses, etc.

In order for the test to be used, a test case must be built. The investigative agent will input confidential and relevant information into the Brain Fingerprinting system used as stimuli for the test.

In our case, we can use as information available in the media, as well as confidential information known only to the perpetrators and investigative agents such as : the date and location of the attack – early Friday morning, in Haril area of Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir; information from the previous similar attacks in the area, during the last months; the investigative agent can also use other information, connected to the previous terror attacks, to test connections with the terror group responsible for the other attacks. This information can be used in the Brain Fingerprinting test in the form of  pictures or words, depending on its available form. The system collects P300 signals emitted from an individual’s brain approximately 300 milliseconds after he or she is confronted with a stimulus of special significance.  System collects brain responses to each stimulus and all these brain responses are analyzed at end of the test by the analysis engine that will determine with 99.9% accuracy if the information is present or absent in the brain of the suspect.

Brainwave Science’s proposed Brain Fingerprinting technology has the power to be effective for local law enforcement as well as deter future terrorist attacks.  Just the fact that the perpetrators would know that if they are caught truth will come out because of Brain Fingerprinting will discourage more young men to engage in violence and therein lies the part of answer for peace in Kashmir.

Rajghat gang-rape and murder: Woman found dead

SITUATION

 

A woman’s partially naked body was found in a Rajhat gang-rape and murder suspected crime. The police recovered shirt buttons, a piece of cloth, liquor bottles and other clues from the spot. They have also detained a few rickshaw-pullers and drug addicts from the area for questioning.

The woman was brutally murdered, strangled, and her face is suspected to have been crushed with a stone. Her body was bruised either as a result of dragging or her struggle with her attackers. The identification of the deceased has become tough for the cops, due to her disfigured face.

She was about five feet tall with a wheatish complexion. She was wearing a soiled salwar suit, which was torn in the breast area, The Times of India reported on Wednesday.

According to the report, the woman from this Rajghat gang-rape case was spotted entering the park with some youths. It appears the woman stayed at footpath near Rajghat. It appears that the youth consumed liquor and then raped her. They made all efforts to kill her. The pieces of clothes and buttons recovered from the spot have been sent for forensic analysis.

CHALLENGE

It is not an easy job for law enforcement to find criminals and deliver justice in cases like this. In the case of the Rajghat gang-rape and murder, police must find a way to detect who is responsible for this awful crime.

More than once, law enforcement officers struggle with cases that lack enough evidence to make an arrest. Even more so, the current investigative methods, such as the DNA test or polygraph, are often short in results. Other times, probes get tampered with, making them unusable in a court of law.

In the case of this Rajghat gang-rape, law enforcement must make light and discover the guilty parties in order to bring peace to the victim and her family. More so, solving such a crime transmits safety to citizens and enables them to trust their local authorities.

 

WHY BRAIN FINGERPRINTING 

To discover who the authors of the Rajghat gang-rape case are, law enforcement can use the extremely valuable Brain Fingerprinting test provided by Brainwave Science. This unique investigative solution has the ability to distinguish between innocents and perpetrators by detecting concealed information in the brain. Its use extends to a variety of cases for Law Enforcement, Border Security, Counterterrorism and Counterintelligence industries.

All the detained suspects, as well as other persons relevant to the investigation of the Rajghat gang-rape case, can take the Brain Fingerprinting test. The test is non-invasive and in full conformity with human rights. Brain Fingerprinting by Brainwave Science detects crime relevant concealed information from all suspicious people and helps identify criminals.

In order for any suspect to take the test, a test case must be built. To do so, the investigative agent must input into the system confidential or mass-media public information about the case, that might also be relevant for the tested subject, and used as test stimuli. In this case, we know the following:  the location of the body and crime – Rajghat; the evidence found at the crime scene – shirt buttons, a piece of cloth, liquor bottles and other clues; the stone with whom her face is suspected to have been crushed with; the bruises on her body. All this information will be input into the system as pictures or words, depending on the form that they’re available in.

The stimuli will be displayed on a computer screen during the test, for the tested suspect to watch. Once the 45 minutes test ends, the proprietary system behind Brain Fingerprinting will analyze the brain’s response to each stimulus. Then, it will determine within a fraction of a second, with 99% accuracy, if the information is present in the suspect’s brain or not, as the system will catch that “aha moment” when analyzing the brain’s response to each stimulus. 

With this unique technology, the Rajghat gang-rape can find its solution and justice can be delivered to the victim and her family, while law enforcement put the guilty ones behind bars.

Female ISIS hit squad planned UK terror attack

SITUATION

A female ISIS hit squad consisting of a teenager and her mother and sister plotted an attack on the British Museum. Safaa Boular, 18, is said to have planned a knife attack at the British Museum after being blocked from joining her terrorist fiance in Syria. It is said that she initially planned the attack with guns and grenades. She was then told by her partner Naweed Hussain all she needed was a car and knife. When Hussain was killed in Syria, she switched her plans to Britain. Investigators bugged her mother’s home and taped conversations revealed Boular’s plans.
Boular was thwarted when she was remanded in custody in April 2017 after allegedly trying to go to Syria in 2016. She then encouraged sister Rizlaine Boular, 21, to carry out the knife attack at the Houses of Parliament, which the two referred to as the “Mad Hatter’s tea party”. Prosecutors said their mother Mina Dich, 44, provided “positive assistance and support” to Rizlaine in Britain’s first all-female terror plot.

Boular allegedly struck up a friendship with an ISIS female recruiter, Umm Isa Al-Amriki, based in Aleppo, and would retweet ISIS material posted by her, and they later spoke on Telegram, the court heard.  Boular had developed a group of contacts within ISIS through her, and received videos of executions and propaganda, jurors were told.

Duncan Atkinson QC told the court: “Safaa Boular told the police when they interviewed her in 2016 that the idea of undertaking a suicide mission appealed to her.”

CHALLENGE

The terrorist threats of today make law enforcement’s mission to protect national borders and citizens increasingly hard. Terrorists blend in among regular people more easily than ever. Thus, it is hard to determine where the threat is coming from.

In the case of the female ISIS hit squad, UK authorities must determine the truth behind the accusations. Their connections to ISIS supporters can easily lead to new attack plans, that will put citizens at risk.

It is very easy in today’s world for ISIS terrorists and supporters to communicate and share their propaganda via Social Media. As it is demonstrated, Safaa Boular has already done that.

Moreover, the technological means that investigative agencies need is not always efficient. DNA testing is irrelevant without DNA present at a crime scene. In equal measure, the polygraph test has been surpassed by guilty criminals a lot of times before.

So what are efficient security and investigative solutions that can aid Counterterrorism agencies to fight back against terror crimes and prevent them before they happen? How can law enforcement shed light in the case of the female ISIS hit squad?

WHY BRAIN FINGERPRINTING

Did you ever imagine that an investigation could rely on what is stored in the human brain? Brain Fingerprinting developed by Brainwave Science is an innovative investigative tool that has the ability to distinguish between innocents and suspects by detecting concealed or hidden information in the brain.

Its unique value is effective in cases of Law Enforcement, Border Security, Counterterrorism, and Counterintelligence. Brain Fingerprinting outranks in results the DNA testing or polygraph test.

In the female ISIS hit squad attack plan, Brain Fingerprinting can determine with 99.9% accuracy what the suspects know. Brain Fingerprinting test can be conducted on Safaa Boular, her sister, and her mother, to determine what they know. The test is non-invasive and fully respects human rights, and it takes only 15 minutes to be prepared. Brain Fingerprinting matches information from the crime scene with information stored in the subject’s brain. For that, the investigative agent will need to gather all the confidential information he knows, that is also relevant to the suspect and input it into the system: the guns and grenades that Safaa Boular wanted initially to use, the car and knife planned for the UK attack, the taped conversations that revealed Boular’s plans, her friendship with the ISIS female recruiter Umm Isa Al-Amriki, the retweets of ISIS material, her connection to the group of contacts within ISIS, the received videos of executions and propaganda, etc. This information will be used in their available form, as pictures or words and displayed as stimuli for the tested subject on a computer screen. If the information is present in the suspect’s brain, the system will catch that “aha moment” when analyzing the brain’s response to each stimulus. 

Brain Fingerprinting is able to determine with 99.9% accuracy if the information is present in the brain or absent. With the intelligence collected after the test, law enforcement can advance the case of the female ISIS hit squad and make justice. Moreover, the test can also determine Boular’s connections to other ISIS members or plans of attack.

With the aid of this one-of-its-kind technology, law enforcement worldwide can fight the terrorist threat and advance their national security efforts.
