Deadly JeM terrorist held in the UAE for attack on Indian soldiersSITUATION

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has finally arrested Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorist Nisar Ahmed Tantray, from the UAE. Tantray was absconding in the 2017 Lethpora CRPF terror attack case.

In December of 2017, four Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed and three injured after) JeM militants attacked a CRPF camp in Kashmir’s Pulwama district early Sunday morning, the CRPF said.

Pulwama is the same town where a convoy of carrying security personnel on the Highway was attacked by a vehicle-borne suicide bomber. 40 security personnel were killed in this attack. In the aftermath of this attack, several JeM militants were killed by the security forces.

The Indian Air Force also conducted proactive strikes on known terrorist strongpoints killing 300 JeM terrorists.

Nisar had escaped to the UAE on February 1 this year. Nisar is the younger brother of Jaish commander Noor Tantray. The government of India brought him back to the country on March 31. Tantray is being interrogated by the National Investigative Agency (NIA) at present.
The terrorist attack on the CRPF group center in Lethpora was carried out on the night of December 30-31, 2017, by three terrorists of the proscribed terrorist organization, the NIA said. During its investigation, the terrorists were identified as Fardeen Ahmad Khandey and Manzoor Baba, both from Pulwama, and Abdul Shakoor from Rawalakot area of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. All three were killed in the encounter.

In February 2019, the NIA arrested an operative of the JeM in connection with the attack. According to an NIA statement, the accused, Fayaz Ahmad Magray, is a key conspirator who gave logistical support such as providing shelter to the terrorists and conducting reconnaissance of the CRPF group centre in Lethpora before the attack. He was detained under the Public Safety Act (PSA) by the Jammu and Kashmir Police earlier in 2001 and he remained under detention for 16 months, it said.

CHALLENGE

The insurgency in Jammu and Kashmir or the Kashmiri Insurgency is a conflict between various Kashmiri separatists and the Government of India. There is widespread demand for either the independence of Kashmir or its accession to Pakistan. The insurgent’s violent foreign terrorists who invigorate and recruit the local people. 3,400 disappearances 47,000 deaths have occurred because of this ‘unrest’. This includes 7,000 police personnel as of July 2009.

The experts have little belief that the situation will improve in the short term. The Government of India needs to weed out the militants from the state of Jammu and Kashmir just like they hunted Nisar Tantray. The innocent residents of the state deserve to live in a peaceful environment, which has been denied to them for almost 28 years.

If it is assisted with modern intelligence gathering mechanisms then there is a huge possibility of saving more human lives, money and time in the fight against extremism and fundamentalism. The conflict of Kashmir is detrimental for peace and development for both India and Pakistan.

WHY ICOGNATIVE?

Brainwave Science based in the USA has embarked on a mission to offer technology which can help the counter-terrorism agencies around the world to effectively combat terrorism. The Indian Government can use Brainwave Science’s help to combat terror in Kashmir and bring the unrest to an end. The insurgent groups need to be identified, their headquarters found out, and their members rounded up. For this, the agencies need a tool which can gather intelligence like never. Brainwave Science has developed and markets the iCognative technology. With this one of a kind investigative and interrogative tool, once a suspect is arrested and an investigation has been carried out in a case, the test can then be administered to the suspect to detect if he or she is aware of crime-related information or not. iCognative is a computerized test and the results are declared as soon as the 45-minute test is over. Using this cutting-edge technology, the investigators can quickly find out which suspect is likely to be the perpetrator and can thus focus their time and energy on the right person.

It is a novel technology which has turned forensic science around. Used by agencies across the globe, it helps them to effectively screen suspects and gather intelligence in a cost-effective and reliable manner.

Moreover, iCognative is a technology which can help find the rank of the arrested person in his or her criminal/terrorist organization. This information is incredibly important because it helps decipher the hierarchy of that organization. Moreover, high-ranking individuals amongst the focussed on because of iCognative thus saving precious resources.

iCognative is extremely versatile and can be used by agencies which deal with national security, border control, immigration, counterterrorism, law enforcement, and human and drug trafficking.

There are popular techniques like DNA, fingerprinting and polygraph (Lie-detector) tests. The drawback is that DNA and fingerprinting are time-consuming, and the samples/evidence is only uncovered in 1-2% of all cases. Moreover, polygraph tests are highly subjective, this means that if the same test subject is tested by two different polygraphists, then the results can be entirely different. At the same time, iCognative is centuries ahead as it is not only applicable in 85-90% of all cases, be it civil or criminal, but also that it is more than 99% accurate in its results. The beauty lies in the fact that the results are reliable and there is an absence of any false-negatives or false-positives. This means that the law enforcement and counterterrorism agencies can be sure that if a person’s test-outcome says ‘information absent’ then he or she has highly likely to know nothing about the crime.

Similarly, if the outcome says ‘information present’, then they can confidently continue interrogating him or her and consider them a likely suspect. iCognative requires simple hardware for conducting the test. It includes a specialized headset which measures brain responses to crime-related images, words, or phrases (also called stimuli) and relays it to the computer where they are instantaneously analyzed. It is easy to deploy and even easier to learn to operate. It is highly customizable, both in terms of language and functionality. There is no need for the use of torture or coercion to conduct an iCognative test.

The security forces must use iCognative and see the ease and effectiveness of this revolutionary system when used to test the arrested suspect (Nisar). The stimuli which must be used for these tests, in order to ascertain his rank, involvement, and discover guilt in other terror crimes, can be details of JeM propaganda material, insignia, names and pictures of their commander,  confidential details of relevant terror attacks to detect his involvement,  dates and times of sightings, CCTV footage, insider information, and other confidential information which persons like Nisar must know, etc,

In the wake of heightened tensions between two peace-loving nations, a modern technology, only a non-invasive technology offered by Brainwave Science can bring transparency and efficiency and help curb militancy in Kashmir.
