Pakistan shuts 20 terror camps in PoK, no infiltration on LoC
Islamabad : Amid fear of getting blacklisted and a deadline approaching fast to take sturdy action against the terrorist organisations in the Pakistan, 20 terror camps have reportedly been shut in the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK). Another data shows that there were no infiltration attempt and cross-border action on the Line of Control (LoC) during the summers.
The Indian Express report came via top intelligence sources which claimed that their inputs suggest shutting of over 20 terror camps in the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir. This has happened before the FATF meeting in the US in June where Pakistan s grey-listing continued, sources said, and is likely to remain in place until October when a case for blacklisting Pakistan over money-laundering and terror funding will be taken up by the FATF in Paris.
The report also claimed that Pakistan may or may not get blacklisted in the upcoming Paris meeting, but since the country was shifted to the grey list by UN, there was an extensive pressure on Rawalpindi considering the current economic situation.
The report also mentioned that the biggest evidence of change in Pakistan on terror camps is the fact that there have been no reports of infiltration and cross-border action on the LoC.
Official documents reviewed by The Indian Express, however, display a certain hesitation in seeing this change from Pakistan as a permanent change of heart. An official note on the situation in Kashmir states upfront that there are some inputs regarding activation of launch pads along the LoC. It further analyses that inputs regarding presence of terrorists in launch pads indicate Pakistan s design to attempt infiltration/ trans-LoC operations.
