One of the pictures showed an electronic gadget installed beneath his shoulder.

Initially, the exact nature of gadget could not be ascertained, however, Twitter user F. Jeffery‏ has claimed that the device was actually a mobile phone.

Not only were the terrorists carrying a phone (satellite or cellular), but allegedly, they were also streaming the live footage of the attack, a vindication of which was the release of pictures by Tehreek-e-Taliban showing the pictures moments before the attack.
