India continues to remain the prime focus of Pakistan-based terrorist outfits, particularly Lashkar-e-Taiba and their affiliates, most prominently the Indian Mujahideen, Lok Sabha was informed on Wednesday.
Minister of State for Home Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary said the interrogation of arrested terrorists by security agencies have revealed that ISI of Pakistan is aiding terror activities in India by providing shelter, training, patronage and financial assistance to terrorists.
“Besides, Indo-Nepal border, being porous, has also been vulnerable to activities of anti-India elements. The militants based in Pakistan use Indo-Pak and Indo-Nepal borders to bring explosives and arms, ammunition to indulge in anti-national activities,” he said in reply to a written question.
Chaudhary said India has raised the issue of ISI’s support to various terror outfits in many forums and handed over relevant dossiers to Pakistani authorities.
