Women become new weapons of terror timed with the polls.

Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor may have been the first to officially admit that women were being trained in terror camps across the LoC to infiltrate into India but intelligence agencies have been talking about it for quite some time now.

The latest inputs reveal that women are being trained, not merely to target political rallies and leaders during elections, but also to assume the role of handlers for coordinating operations and giving directions to terrorists. According to sources, women are the new weapon of choice because they are not allowed to be frisked by male army personnel because of the sensitive situation in J&K.

The army and intelligence agencies have now sought deployment of more women police personnel in the state during elections. The worst fears of intelligence and security forces were confirmed when the J&K Police had arrested Ashiya Begum, 25, from the Sunderbani area of Rajouri district while she was trying to infiltrate in November last year.

She disclosed that 700 women were being trained in ISI-run camps at Bhimbar, Kotil and Sinsa where they were being also shown video footage of the fencing on the LoC and taught how to breach it. According to her interrogation report from Jammu Jail, there are already a number of women terrorists operating in India.
