New Delhi: Two Pakistan-backed militants arrested by the Indian Army near the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir have revealed their plans of fomenting terrorism in India.
On Wednesday, the Indian Army released videos of their confession during a joint briefing by the J&K Police and the Army’s Chinar Corps in Srinagar.
The nabbed militants have been identified as Khalil Ahmad Kayan (35) and Mohammad Nazeem (22). Both militants are from Rawalpindi in the Punjab province of Pakistan and have claimed their allegiance to the proscribed terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba.
During questioning, the two LeT militants revealed their plans for carrying out attacks in India to disrupt peace and harmony. They also provided an account of the Pakistan Army’s full complicity in helping and guiding terrorists in infiltration from terror launch pads.
“These terrorists will now be sent for detailed questioning, interrogation and investigation to the concerned agency,” said the Army in a statement.
The briefing was held at the Army’s Badami Bagh Headquarters in Srinagar by Chinar Corps Commander Lieutenant General K.J.S. Dhillon and Jammu and Kashmir Police Chief Munir Khan.
“Despite an all-round debacle, the Pakistan Army and ISI will attempt to disrupt peace here. Let Pakistan try anything, they will get a befitting reply. The Indian Army will teach them a lesson they will never forget, even graver than 1971,” said Lt Gen Dhillon.
