New Delhi: After the Balakot airstrike, Indian intelligence agencies have prepared a detailed report on the existing terror infrastructure near military installations in Pakistan.
The report on the terror hubs located in Pakistan is likely to be shared at international platforms to tell the world how Pakistan-sponsored terrorism is a growing threat, according to a report by India Today. Sources said India will the share the satellite images of terror hideouts and camps with friendly countries to shame Pakistan globally.
The Indian intelligence agencies, in the report, have identified 16 other terror hubs in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and hinterland. The terror infrastructure includes communication and control stations and offices of terror units that continue to abet terrorism in India.
All the terror infrastructure is in the vicinity of Pakistan Army camps, the report stated. The report stated that all the identified terror-hubs, which are located near the Pakistan Army camps, are training grounds for militants planning to orchestrate terror strikes in India. The specialised training at these centres includes: sniping, water combat, putting together Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) and using drones.
There are six training centres or launch pads where terrorists are being groomed extensively for carrying out commando-style operations and infiltration. These have been identified in Boi, Laqa-e-Gair in hinterland Pakistan and Deolin, Khalid Bin Walid and Garhi and Dopatta in PoK.
Other than the camp in Balakot that was targeted by the Indian Air Force (IAF), there are five other such centres in hinterland Pakistan. While three are in Mansera, two exist in Punjab. PoK still has 11 such camps operating that includes five — each in Muzzafarabad and Kotli clusters — and one in Barnala.
The water combat training that is imparted to the terrorists in these camps poses a grave threat to India via sea. Navy Chief Admiral Sunil Lanba on Tuesday said India faces the threat of terror through the seas.
“We also have reports of terrorists being trained to carry out attacks with varying modus operandi including through the medium of the sea,” he said. “You have all witnessed the horrific scale of the extremist attack in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir just three weeks ago. This violence was perpetrated by extremists aided and abetted by a state which seeks to destabilise India,” he said.
Recent intelligence reports have indicated the growing threat of a terror attack through the seas by Pakistan-based terrorists backed by their military. There are inputs that several aquatic wings of the terror outfits have been set up. Groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and JeM are training their new recruits in water combat skills, reports suggest.
