By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, July 31: Pakistan Army's Special Service Group (SSG) has trained around 20 Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists in Afghanistan to carry out attacks in India ahead of August 5, the first anniversary of the constitutional reorganization of Jammu and Kashmir and August 15, the Independence Day.

Intelligence sources told IANS Pakistan Army's SSG, a special force which is skilled in unconventional warfare (cross-border terrorism), has trained batches of four to five terrorists who are being pushed to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir from the Line of Control (LoC) and International Border (IB).

"The attacks are to be carried out by JeM or LeT terrorists trained in Afghanistan," a top official source said.

There has been a build-up of trained Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and JeM cadres at forward launching pads in Pakistan across the Jammu sector, sources said. Security agencies in J&K believe that a huge number of terrorists are likely to make attempts to infiltrate from vulnerable points across the IB in Jammu region and adjoining border of Punjab. � IANS
