As per the plan, these members were supposed to plant some explosives and destructive devices in Kashmir, and Indian forces were supposed to find the near a mosque in Poonch.
Officials also claimed, through media reports, that a Deputy superintendent of Indian police was supervising the false flag operation at the behest of centre.
