New Delhi, Sept. 22: In a major breakthrough security agencies have reportedly zeroed in on three mobile phone calls made just before and after the shooting incident near Jama Masjid on September 19. Initial probe has revealed that the SIM to which the calls were made was bought from UP.

According to sources central security agencies after scrutinising the call details of six mobile towers located around Jama Masjid area, probing officials are now concentrating on only three mobile phone calls which were made before and after the incident.
