Pakistan backing terrorists sneaking into India: Indian Army chief

April 17th, 2009 - 10:33 pm ICT by IANS  

Taliban New Delhi, April 17 (IANS) Indian Army chief General Deepak Kapoor Friday accused Pakistan of supporting terrorist infiltration into India.
“The camps, which were there on the other side, are still existing… There is definite support for infiltration from the other side,” Kapoor told the NDTV news channel.

He said the weapons and communications equipment seized from the terrorists showed the Pakistani side was giving them a tremendous degree of support.

“The kind of equipment with which these militants have been caught - whether in terms of weapons or communication equipment - indicates the tremendous support given to them by the other side,” the army chief said.

He, however, added that India can effectively tackle the Taliban infiltration into the country.

“Fifty percent of the component of these (terror) groups had been foreign terrorists. So, if the Taliban decide to come into the state of Jammu and Kashmir, I have no doubt that we will be able to tackle them,” Gen. Kapoor said.
