Another terror attack in Valley district of Jammu and Kashmir

June 11, 2018 | Brainwave Science



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.




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?




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, iCognative can distinguish between innocents and perpetrators. It relies on how the brain responds to certain specific stimuli;  iCognative system detects concealed or hidden information in the brain.

iCognative 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, iCognative can aid law enforcement advance the case and quickly gather intelligence. The iCognative 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 iCognative system used as stimuli for the test.

In our case, we can use as information available in the media, as well as confidential information is 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 iCognative 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.  The 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 iCognative 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 iCognative will discourage more young men to engage in violence and therein lies the part of an answer for peace in Kashmir.
