India again blames Pakistan for ‘fuelling terrorism in Kashmir’

Kashmir-India-Pakistan

NEW DELHI: Indian foreign secretary Subrahmanyam Jaishankar summoned Pakistani High Commissioner in India Abdul Basit over what India described “cross border terrorism “, Indian Ministry of External Affairs said on Tuesday.

According to Indian MEA, the Indian diplomat issued a strong demarche accusing Pakistan of cross border terrorism in Kashmir.

The demarche claims that Indian authorities have arrested a Pakistani national Bahadur Ali alias Abu Saifullah from Indian Occupied Kashmir on July 25, 2016 with weapons, sophisticated communication equipment and other material of Pakistani/international origin.

“Bahadur Ali has confessed to our authorities that after training in Lashkar-e-Taiba camps, he was infiltrated into India. He was thereafter in touch with an ‘operations room’ of LeT, receiving instructions to attack Indian security personnel and carry out other terrorist attacks in India,” reads the statement issued by Indian MEA.

Indian authorities claim that Bahadur Ali, in a letter addressed to the Pakistan High Commissioner in New Delhi, has requested legal aid and assistance to meet his family.

The statement adds that India is prepared to grant the Pakistan High Commission consular access to Bahadur Ali.
