After the Pulwama attack, the NIA, which was entrusted with the investigation, was not able to connect the links of the incident. Although preliminary investigations based on forensic and other scientific evidence yielded some clues, these were not enough to understand who the perpetrators were.

The recovered phones had an integrated GPS that geotagged the images, revealing the date, time and location of the photographs and videos. The discovery of this phone opened the mystery of the Pulwama case.
