Pakistan continuing to harbour terrorists: India


The Indian government said on Sunday Pakistan was continuing to harbour terrorists on its soil and despite repeated requests it had taken no steps to dismantle the terror infrastructure there. “We have been taking up [the issue] with Pakistan. We have taken [it] up with Pakistan in various forums, bilateral as well as multilateral. But unfortunately, it has had no effect on the ground,” Union Home Secretary RK Singh told reporters in the Indian capital.
He was replying to questions about whether Pakistan had been taking action to stop cross-border terrorism. “Though they (Pakistanis) keep telling us that they do not encourage terrorists or that they do not encourage people to operate from their soil, on the ground there has been no difference,” he said. Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had recently said there were reports of cross-border camps being reactivated and attempts being made to induct fresh batches of militants.
