Two Pakistani nationals, who were caught while trying to enter Kashmir, have revealed in their interrogation that more than 50 Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists have been waiting to enter India. They have also revealed that the terrorists are waiting to infiltrate India with the help of Pakistan's Army and the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), sources have said.
Khalil Ahmad and Mozam Khokar, the Pakistani nationals, have told the interrogators that Pakistan's army has been using its posts at Kacharban to help the terrorists enter India.
Sources have also confirmed that the Pakistan army and ISI have activated more than a dozen launching pads across the Line of Control.
A large number of terrorists are currently present at three places in the Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK). According to sources, the ISI and the Pakistani army have sheltered the terrorists at three launchpads in PoK.
The presence of more than 100 terrorists is suspected at the Lipa Valley launch pad in PoK.
The terrorists at the launchpads also belong to the Jaish-e-Mohammad and Al-Badr militant organization. The Lipa launchpad faces the Tangdhar and Uri sectors of Jammu and Kashmir.
The news of the presence of 60 to 70 terrorists on the Lanjote and Kalu launchpads in the PoK. The Kalu launchpad faces the tail sector of Jammu and Kashmir.
The top security officers on Wednesday said that they apprehended two Pakistani nationals while they were trying to enter Kashmir.
"Pakistan is desperate for terrorists to infiltrate... to disrupt peace in the valley," General Officer Commanding (GoC) of the Army's 15 Corps Lt General KJS Dhillon said at a joint briefing with Additional Director General of Police, Kashmir, Munir Khan.
He said the two Pakistani nationals associated with the LeT were apprehended on August 21.
Two videos were played during the press briefing showing the apprehended Pakistanis confessing to infiltration.
"These two videos very clearly show how Pakistan, its Army and the citizens of Pakistan are being pushed into Kashmir to undertake terrorist activities in the valley to disrupt the peace that is prevailing, especially after August 5," Dhillon said.
Munir Khan said infiltration attempts are being made continuously. "Many such (infiltration) attempts have been foiled by the Indian Army so far," he said.
