EVIDENCE PAK INVOLVEMENT IN RECENT BEHEADING
According to NDTV reports, the recovery of a night vision device with the marking "US government property" is being seen by the Indian Army as a clear indicator of the involvement of the Pakistani Army in the Machil incident of November 22 when Indian Army rifleman Prabhu Singh was beheaded and two other soldiers ambushed and killed. Senior Indian Army officers have conjectured that the night vision monocle was likely transferred by the United States to the Pakistani Army for use in combating terrorists on the Afghanistan front. Some of these devices, it is believed, were transferred to Pakistani Border Action Team or BAT members who carried out the November 22 attack. Other than the night vision device, there are other clear indicators of a Pakistani hand in the attacks. A medical gauze recovered in Machil is marked "Pakistan Defence Forces" while medicines have markings of Lahore, Karachi and Multan on them. Other equipment recovered includes a tactical radio-set, several ammunition cartridges, wire cutters, food items, binoculars and sleeping bags.
