In Kashmir, the United States has reportedly confirmed to India, 23 most active “Hizb” emails accounts are being operated from different locations.

The ‘revelation of sorts’ was made in a 78-page response by the US Department of Justice to a detailed request that home ministry had made to them under the Indo-US Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty.

Of the 23 email accounts operating in the Kashmir, the report says, 11 are active from Pakistan and rest in US.

“All these operatives are suspected Hizbul Mujahideen cadre and much of this information was collected during the probe of suspected HM front, the J&K Affectees Relief Trust,” the report says. “India has already taken up case of HM head Syed Salahuddin with the United Nations.”

At the Indian end, the report says, the National Investigation Agency is carrying out the probe.

The use of same Pakistani mobile numbers in the contact information is one aspect highlighted in the US report.

“April 15, 2014: abdul1452 @gmail.com, belonging to one Abdul Rahim in Pakistan, sent an email to multiple recipients with the title “confidential army report on LET April 2014′. It attached a report with the message, Yeh Indian Army ki confidential report hai hamare lashkar-e-toiba aur Mujahideen par. Jarur Dekhe aur Satark rahe (This is the confidential report of army on LeT. Do see and be alert),” the report said.

The US report details 139 such conversations, including of some email accounts that have been active since 2007. Some mails have also got Indian agencies worried like the one sent by HM militant mzafarkhan08 @ yahoo.com on December 26, 2013 with an attachment of a list of Pakistani prisoners in Indian jails.
