Jammu, India: Militants are using GPS for cross-border infiltration and locating safe routes in the state of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) in India, the police said here after a high-end GPS was seized from Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants. “Militants are using GPS for finding infiltration routes and tracks for movement within J&K. The satellite-based navigation system is being used by militants as a guide in the mountainous terrain,” said Superintendent of Police (Noushera) R.K. Bhat.
A Taiwan-made Garmin GPS was seized from two LeT militants who recently infiltrated from across line of control and were killed in the Dharamshal area of Rajouri district on Saturday, according to Bhat. As the militants were increasingly finding it difficult to get guides to help them move from one area to another, they were now using the GPS, he added.
