The CDR, IPDR and whatsapp logs of these mobile numbers were obtained from concerned mobile service providers," it added.
"The accused were confronted with the chats recovered from their mobile phones using social media apps like Signal and whatsapp with Suhail (Pakistani National) and Arsh Dalla (designated terrorist).

According to the Special Cell, the chats showed Naushad seems to be "very excited to finalise the matter fast".
"He (Naushad) was saying (in chat) that since long time (we are) just messaging and this is not very good for the Muslims in India. Suhail is saying that they have arranged funds for him and are looking for the routes how it can be delivered. He is saying that (Bujurgon) senior persons sitting in Pakistan had planned to give a big responsibility to him and after delivery of funds Naushad will be called to Nepal. They are actually planning a terror attack which would be done after January 26 as the police will be having an eye on him," the chargesheet elaborated the chats.
Naushad also messaged that as per their earlier plan he had to leave for Nepal to carry out their plans of escorting terrorists to India. "Naushad in chat had asked Suhail about the plan of 2T (two terrorists which were supposed to come to India for carrying out the attack). In continued chat, the Pakistani handler (Suhail) also responds to Naushad messages saying that due to some reasons their earlier plan has failed and they have arranged funds for him which will be sent to him shortly. Later in the chats, Naushad had sent a text that he is ready to come to Nepal to execute the task of escorting terrorists and meet the Bujurg (terrorists)," the chargesheet added.
