Prison officials said there was no SIM card in the phone and refused to speculate on whether Fahad could have used it.Pakistani national Fahad is a suspected member of the terror group Al-Badr terror. He was arrested in Mysuru in 2006. A few years ago, intelligence officials found that he and his associate Mohammad Ali Hussein had been using a mobile phone from central prison to keep in touch with their associates in Pakistan. The discovery resulted in the two being shifted to Gulbarga central jail.
