LAHORE: Articles recovered from Raymond Davis’ possession, including mobile phones, credit cards and tracking devices, have been used by agencies to track Davis’ movement in Pakistan between January 20 and 27, 2011.
Sources say that Davis reached Islamabad, via flight QR-398, on January 20, 2011 and boarded a Lahore-bound PIA flight the same day.
He went to 182/A, Upper Mall (Scotch Corner), reportedly used as a residence by the US Consulate General Lahore for the past three years, after arriving at the Allama Iqbal International airport on January 20.
He arrived at the residence alone while five more American nationals arrived at the same residence later, on the same date.
On January 21, Davis reported at the US Consulate and received a black-coloured Land Cruiser while on January 24, he returned the Land Cruiser and received a white-coloured Honda.
Between January 21 and 27, Davis also stayed for a day at 59/A, Cavalry Ground, one of the three residences used by the US Consulate in Lahore. Davis reportedly also met some locals while at this location.
He exchanged $300 for Pakistani Rupees at the World Exchange Co. ’B’ (Pvt) Ltd., 21 ground floor, Center Point, Main Boulevard, Gulberg between January 20 and 27.
Security personnel deployed at 182-A, Upper Mall told The Express Tribune that on January 27, after the shooting incident, two Americans visited the residence and left with various articles including Davis’ luggage.
Sources within intelligence agencies add that Davis initially arrived in Pakistan on October 18, 2009 and has visited the country nine times since then. He mostly stayed in Peshawar on these trips.
