 Intelligence inputs : Terrorists planning major strikes in IndiaSITUATION

Intelligence agencies are on high alert after receiving specific inputs that terrorists are planning to carry out multiple attacks inside India. The agencies believe that terrorists are conspiring to carry on some big terror strikes. Sources have informed them that three terrorists have infiltrated inside India through Nepal and they have reached Bandipora in Jammu and Kashmir.

On the other hand, Bangladesh-based terror group Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) has trained a female suicide bomber and it is likely that she might target Buddhist Temples in Bangladesh, India, and Myanmar. Intelligence agencies are treating these developments as the arrival of Islamic State (IS) in South East Asia and the recent attacks at churches in Sri Lanka add credence to this theory.

Intelligence says that a terrorist named Sajid Mir recently brought three foreign terrorists to Bandipora from Kathmandu in Nepal. It is to be noted that Bandipora is seen as one of the safest places. The infiltration through Nepal has left security agencies deeply worried because no infiltration had taken place from this route in 2017 and 2018.

It may be recalled that Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI had once very strong network in border areas of Nepal but the network was dismantled in recent years. But the inputs which have left intelligence agencies more worried is related to the female suicide bomber of JMB. Sources said that the suicide bomber has been trained to target Buddhist temples on May 18 during Buddha Purnima. JMB’s motive behind these attacks is to take revenge of the alleged atrocities committed by the Buddhists on Muslims.

JMB is a Bangladesh-based terrorist organization. The JMB, which is now banned in Bangladesh, is responsible for carrying out some major terror attacks in Bangladesh in the last decade. Four JMB members were hanged on March 29, 2007, for their involvement in terror activities. Sources said that the JMB is growing in strength because it is receiving financial support from orthodox Muslim nations and organizations. In 2015, two Pakistani High Commission officials were caught red-handed while they were arranging funds for JMB.

CHALLENGE

Investigative agencies are scrambling across the world to prevent terrorist attacks. They have elaborate networks to gather intelligence in order to do the same. These networks employ many technologies, employ informants and spies to do the job. Intelligence gathering is thus not a trivial job. It is an essential element of national security, law enforcement, counter-terrorism, immigration, trafficking, and border security, etc. Yet such a crucial and common component works on archaic methods. It relies on humans who can easily be compromised. It is slowed down by the efficiency and inaccuracy inherent in its design.

Intelligence is available everywhere but how much of it is usable. Intelligence if not obtained at the right time is of no use. Attacks can be prevented, terror organizations can be deconstructed and dismantled if their hierarchy is known, links between organizations can be exploited if crucial details such as the money trail can be unearthed. If intelligence is shared among agencies in a timely fashion then terrorists cannot outrun the establishment. If information about crimes which took place long ago, remains usable and then resurgence can be prevented.

The methods of gathering, sharing and preserving intelligence need a massive overhaul. There is a need for the intervention of modern technology to make this happen. The question is that is such an overhaul even possible?

WHY ICOGNATIVE?

Such an intervention is indeed possible, and it exists. All evil plans originate in the human brain. The brains of terrorists hold sensitive information about contacts in sleeper cells, terror networks, details of planned attacks, sources from where they usually procure supplies and weapons, etc.

Counterterrorism officials will heave a sigh of relief when they are able to accurately validate potential threats and terrorist activity. There is a tool which can measure a testee’s brain response to stimuli related to IED/EOD bomb knowledge. The brain response can reveal whether the testee possesses such information or not. This can tell the investigators if the person being tested has ever been brainwashed or exposed to terrorism-related influence. This state-of-the-art tool is called iCognative, developed and provided only by Brainwave Science. Not limited only to bomb knowledge, iCognative can help discover high-value terrorist superstars, terrorist networks, places, and events.

In a very accurate manner, iCognative can ascertain the level to which an individual is involved in a terrorist plot. It can even reveal if a person is a part of a sleeper cell, as his brain will always retain terrorism-related training. It is very easy to decode the structure of a terrorist network using iCognative.

iCognative tests can be administered on suspects when arrested. As detailed above, it will help in not only confirming their guilt but also help in uncovering more details related to terror in India neighboring countries. iCognative technology enables counterterrorism officials to be able to scientifically test suspected terrorists to indict or exonerate them based on the information stored within their brain.

The stimuli to be used for each suspect depends on the case for which he or she is being interrogated. The stimuli can be in the form of insignia of a terror group, propaganda material, known terrorists, etc. This can help detect members of a terrorist group even before they have committed an act.

Usual intelligence gathering processes involve long interrogation sessions, sometimes where force is used. iCognative elicits information in a non-invasive manner. Where traditional information gathering techniques like DNA are only applicable in 1 to 2 % of the cases, iCognative is applicable to more than 85% of the cases.

Counter-terrorism agencies have yearned for a technology which can help catch terrorists and pre-empt terrorist activities in a cost-effective, accurate and reliable manner. iCognative can highlight active and inactive terrorists. It is a technology which is more than 99% accurate in its results and thus, is a powerful weapon in the fight against terrorism.
