In the 26/11 chargesheet, India has pointed specifically to a serving Colonel rank Pak Army official and a civilian with operation of the VoIP communication that guided terrorists along. They are Colonel R. Saadat Ullah and Khurram Shazad – both with Special Communication Organisation operating under Pakistan’s Ministry of Information and Technology. They had opened a VoIP account with Callphonex, US using Kharak Singh as the name. It was opened on Oct 21, 2008. And first payment of $250 was made on October 27 via a Moneygram from Paracha International Exchange a moneygram agent in Lahore. A second payment of $229 was made on November 25, 2008. A day before the terrorist team reached Mumbai.
Communications with the Callphonex company was done using firstname.lastname@example.org as the mail id. It was operated using around 10 IP addresses (ostensibly, from 10 different places). Through these IP addresses, the team zeroed-in on these two gentlemen.
There is another Pak Army official who is of interest to India – probably a Major General. He has been named by Ajmal Kasab and Indian LeT guys Fahim Ansari and Sabahuddin Mohammad, as the one involved in training the cadres for anti-India operations. It is fairly obvious that Drishtikone’s earlier questions on what constitutes “Pakistani Administration” and who is or is not a state actor were spot on! First, it is meaningless to talk of Pak Army and ISI separately. Second, there is a substantial number in those two organizations, who will keep using the terrorists against India. And this includes those at the higher levels (like Musharraf).
