The Director-General of Police of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), Dilbag Singh claimed on Tuesday that 57 Kashmiri youths who had gone to Pakistan on valid visas and passports joined terrorist outfits. He added that 17 of them are still taking haven in Pakistan and they are keeping an eye on them. However, he failed to present any evidence that could back his claims.

He claimed that the truce didn’t work for long because “after a brief lull following renewed truce deal between the two DGMOs on February 25, infiltration into Jammu and Kashmir resumed”, and asserted that the “terror camps across the border were still intact.”

He stated to the reporters in Rajouri that 17 of them who crossed the LOC are killed in various encounters, while 13 of them are still active and we are searching for them. He added that the terror camps across the border with Pakistan are “run by ISI and other sister agencies are still intact”. Thus, Pakistan is back on its ugly tricks, said the DGP while adding the recent encounters in the Rajouri sector — Daddal in Nowshera, Sunderbani, and Pangai in Thannamandi.

DGP blames Pakistan for giving guns preference over pen

He further stated that “guns are given preference over pens in Pakistan and therefore, there is a need to strengthen our measures to give security clearance for Pakistani visas.” In doing so he expressed his concern about the Kashmiris going on student and tourist visas in Pakistan and return as terrorists. Therefore, he declared the need to put curbs on traveling to Pakistan and strengthen the related security measures.

No substantial evidence that proves Pakistan’s negative role

DGP IIOJK claims are backed by no substantial evidence which could highlight Pakistan’s role in perceived terrorism. For years India has portrayed the Kashmiri struggle against Indian occupation and aggression under the lens of state-sponsored terrorism by Pakistan.

J&K DGP Dilbag Singh claims that infiltration has resumed as 250 to 300 terrorists are waiting at launch pads in Pakistan. India is giving such statements to manipulate its public opinion about Pakistan and bolster the anti-Pakistan stance in the region.

Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed claimed on Monday that India, Israel and Afghanistan are to be accused for the hike in terrorism in Pakistan by referring to Dasu Blasts. He reiterates his stance that claiming that militancy in the country is backed and funded by “enemies abroad”.

Moreover, “India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), [Afghanistan’s] National Directorate of Security, and Israel’s spy agency are trying to sabotage peace in Pakistan,” he told a press conference in Islamabad. Thus, he added that the foreign nations were using media and hybrid warfare tactics to destabilize, discredit and dismantle Pakistan’s writ and standing in the international community.
