Pak investigators retrieve data from Davis’ cell phones, GPS deviceFebruary 26th, 2011 - 1:55 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, Feb 26(ANI): The data recovered from the GPS device seized from double murder-accused US national Raymond Davis’ possession shows that the alleged Central Intelligence Agency agent had been to Islamabad, Lahore, Peshawar and even some tribal areas of Pakistan.
Earlier, the Punjab police had sent Davis’ belongings, including two cell phones, sim cards, a wireless set and a GPS device, to the Interior Ministry for detailed forensic analysis.
The Counter Terrorism Wing (CTW) of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) submitted a report to the Punjab police on the data recovered from Davis’ cell phones and other devices seized from his possession, The Express Tribune reports.
The GPS device revealed that Davis has been to Islamabad, Lahore, Peshawar and some tribal areas of the country. Investigators believe that the report will be helpful in their probe, particularly regarding anti-Pakistan activities and spying allegations against Davis.
The CTW also succeeded in retrieving deleted text messages, incoming/outgoing calls, contacts, audio/video recordings, photos, schedules and emails from Davis’ cell phones, and it also retrieved data regarding frequencies fed in his wireless set.
During forensic analysis, experts detected that apart from the frequencies allotted by the US, frequencies of the police and some other agencies were also fed in the wireless set recovered from Davis, sources said.
However, Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Lahore Muhammad Aslam Tareen said that he had not received the report yet. “I am not able to comment before seeing the report,” he added.
The 300-page report also carries the ‘expert opinion’ of Deputy Director Forensic CTW, while the methods of retrieving the data have also been detailed in the report.
Sources said that the tools and technologies used to extract the evidence are admissible in a court of law. (ANI)
