Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor on Monday said Pakistan was following a “dichotomous policy” in fighting terrorism -- operating against militants within the country and “perpetuating terror” in India.


“I find it rather odd that on the one hand Pakistan would like to fight terror, therefore it is moving troops to fight them but on the other hand, it is perpetuating terror by sending in infiltrators into Kashmir,” he said.

“I think they are following a dichotomous policy,” Kapoor told reporters on the sidelines of a seminar here.

About recent spurt in terrorist activities in Jammu and Kashmir, he said, “Pakistan will use any and every opportunity to raise Kashmir (issue), whenever they get a chance. So, I see the increase in infiltration in that context.”

“They find things have gone far too peaceful. Amarnath Yatra has passed off peacefully...perhaps they don’t wish for this prolonged peace and stability,” Kapoor said.

“Hence you see heightened activity, heightened attempts to try to get as many people in before the winters come, snow falls and passes close,” he added.
