Whats in a word? Lots, if they are used by the IM

If you are talking in a chatline about the urgent need for a 'ticket' since you don't have a 'reservation' due to lack of a 'deposit', the intelligence agencies might sometimes get interested in your conversation.

After interrogating many of the top-notch IM terrorists over the past few months, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has been able to crack some of the code words used by them.

'Reservation' means an AK 47, and 'ticket ' stands for a pistol and 'deposit' stands for a terrorist. Such common words are used to throw snoopy cops out of their trail. Normally, frequently used complicated words in phone or social network chats are likely to be red-flagged by intelligence agencies. 'Ticket' and 'Reservation' do not face such problems.

"The list is a gold mine of information which will help security agencies understand how terror operatives communicate with each other," said a senior intelligence officer.
Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) is referred to as Voda, while its agents are called Taagut. Terror outfit Al Qaida is code- worded Micro and Waziristan-based Al Qaida is referred to as Waagu. Al Qaida operatives and members are called 'uperwalen' (people above).

IM co-founder Riyaz Bhatkal and his elder brother Iqbal are called as 'chota' (small) and 'bada' (big). Top IM operative Yasin Bhatkal, who was arrested by the NIA in August last year, is referred to as 'Prnc' (prince) and TB. Assadullah Akhtar alias Haddi, who was arrested alongwith Yasin, is called Champ2.
Another top IM operative, Amir Reza Khan alias Rizwan, who is believed to have joined hands with Al Qaida is referred to only as 'Rzz'. Bada Sajid, IM operative now believed to be hiding in Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa area and linked to the Al Qaida is called 'Chikn'.

Even important places have been given code names. Dubai is called Dub, India is called Innd, while Delhi is called Cappt and Mumbai is Gaww. Gujarat is called Jejuu and Bhatkal is called Dehat by IM members. A passport is termed as 'Khaldy'. The NIA is referred to as 'N eye' and Jews or Yehudis are called Yao, EN@ means Inshallah.

Terror outfits have also come up with innovative code words for arms and explosives. A pistol is called Ticket, an AK47 assault rifle is termed as reservation. A fidayeens are called as 'deposit', while a submarine is referred to as 'mmrruine'. 'Kalungi' stands for explosives and detonators are called 'elaichi' (cardamom).
Social networking sites Paltalk is referred to as 'pt' and Nimbuzz is called 'n'.

All the major IM operatives in India, including Yasin, Assadulla, Waqas and others have been arrested, breaking the backbone of the terror outfit in India.
Riyaz Bhatkal, the top IM man, is believed to be in Pakistan. He used to operate his chat accounts with bogus IDs like 'Samlove' and 'Patara Singh'. Yasin had created fake IDs in the name of 'halwa wala', hbahaddur and diwanapyarka114.
