Women terrorists are being trained in Pakistan and Pakistan-administered Kashmir for anti-India activities, parliament was told on Tuesday.

Minister of State for Home Affairs Ajay Maken told the Lok Sabha that reports "indicate that women are being trained in Pakistan and Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir for terror activities".

"Pakistan-based terrorist groups, including the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), are reported to be active in organising acts of terror," he said.

LeT is a banned militant organisation in Pakistan. It is said to be behind major terror activities in the past one decade including the audacious 26/11 Mumbai terror attack last year.
