Terrorists in Kashmir using mobiles to trigger blasts
"... The modus operandi of the rebels is to plant explosive-laden mobile phones at strategic places and call on the number from a remote phone to trigger it.
"On 27th December a explosion was done using a mobile phone. It was a mobile phone blast. When further investigation was done, it came to light that the SIM used in the mobile phone was issued on a fraud name of an army man," said, Lieutenant Colonel A. K. Mathur, spokesperson of the Indian army.
... Mobile telephony was not permitted in Kashmir valley, until 2003, as security agencies feared that militants would misuse it. " [via Zee News]
