After Indian fighter jets decimated Jaish-e-Mohammed camps in Pakistan's Balakot on February 26, the then Airforce chief BS Dhanoa called the National Security Advisor Ajit Doval on a special RAX number and said, "Bandar Maara Gaya." RAX is a highly secured fixed-line network. Mr. Dhanoa made similar phone calls to the then defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman and R&AW Secretary Anil Dhasmana. The NSA then informed PM Modi.
