The central government said on Wednesday that there have been some unconfirmed reports that the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba is reviving its women cadre and planning to use it in Jammu and Kashmir.

"There have been some unconfirmed reports in this regard. However, there are no reports of successful infiltration or terrorist activity by LeT women cadre in Jammu and Kashmir," minister of state for home Jitendra Singh told Rajya Sabha.

He said security forces were keeping a strict vigil on the activities of the LeT.

In reply to another question, Singh said Hizbul Mujahideen accounts for nearly 35-40% of all terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir and is the "most active" outfit in the Valley next to LeT in terms of strength and capability to carry our terror strikes.
