Pakistan Army’s Special Service Group (SSG) commandos are now reportedly providing arms training to Talibani and Afghani terrorists to launch attacks on Indian security establishment and patrolling parties in Jammu and Kashmir.
According to the intel report, the influx of Taliban/Afghan terrorists means more threats of terror attacks in India in the future. The report also claimed that different terrorist outfits in Kashmir were working in tandem with each other to launch terror attacks in the valley and facilitate infiltration of terrorists from Pakistan.
The intelligence bureau report accessed by India Today Group reveals that Pak agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Army are pushing more Taliban/Afgan and Pathani militants in the Valley to mix-up other terrorist outfits.
The militants’ new strategy to evade the security forces includes limited use of mobile and electronic gadgets. The input also says that the Pakistan Army would facilitate the infiltration of 20-25 these trained cadres through the Line of Control and five to six such cadres through India-Nepal border.
Additionally, the Talibani and Afghani militant commanders are using female over ground workers (OGWs) who will be staying in houses of poor people in Jammu and Kashmir. Some call intercepts have revealed the increase in the presence of Talibani/Afghani/Pathani terrorist at Line of Control (LoC).
Intel report has also revealed a 22% increase in movement of terrorists at various launch pads near LoC. Also, there was a notable increase in the movement of terrorists in the Naushera sector, Bimber Gali sector, KG sector, Karan sector and Poonch Sector.
It has been revealed from the report of security agencies that since the terrorists in Kashmir are finding it tough to receive funds from Pakistan due to strong steps taken by the Indian government, the ISI has devised a tiffin box plan to fund the terrorists.
Recently, Jammu police had arrested a young man from a Doda who used to send money to Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists using tiffin boxes. Police have foiled a major plan of the terrorists by seizing Rs 1.5 lakh from tiffin box which was in possession of the arrested man.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, militancy has not stopped in Kashmir. Earlier today, the Indian army neutralised Hizbul Mujahideen commander Azaad Lalhari in an encounter in Pulwama. The army also reported the loss of a solider.
Since the beginning of the year, 154 militants have been neutralized in Jammu and Kashmir. During the same time, 19 civilians and 34 members of the Indian security forces have also lost their lives.
