Pakistan army's Colonel R Saadat Ullah, named as one of the accused in the 26/11 chargesheet, is working with Special Communications Organisation, a unit of the Pakistani army which looks after telephone networks in PoK and northern areas.

The colonel along with another accused were shown as wanted as they facilitated the communication between the 10 terrorists who massacred innocent people in the financial capital of the country during November 26 and 29 last year.

According to the chargesheet running into over 11,000 pages, the Colonel was in constant touch with the accused, all members of the Lashkar-e-Taiba.

Mumbai Police and Central security agencies have alleged that Ullah had also provided training to militants in handling telephone conversation through Voice over Internet Protocol.

During investigation, it was found that VoIP account was accessed through an email account Kharak_telco@yahoo.Com. This email was accessed from 10 Internet Protocol addresses which included that of Col Ullah's (118.107.140.138).

This address was registered in name of Col Saadat Ullah, SCO, Qasim Road, Rawalpindi.

Headed by a Major General, the SCO was raised in July 1976 on the directive of Prime Minister of Pakistan to operate telecommunications in PoK and Northern Areas.
