Terming militant groups in Pakistan as "dark forces", Home Minister P. Chidambaram on Sunday said New Delhi was watching the activities of terror outfits in Pakistani Kashmir but stressed they won't succeed in their anti-India designs.

"Let me draw your attention to the Feb 4 meeting of militant groups in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, which was attended by the Laskhar-e-Taiba and the Hizbul Mujahideen. It is clear that these groups are anti-India and want annexation of Jammu and Kashmir... These dark forces will not succeed," Chidambaram said.

He was giving his opening remarks at the internal security conclave for state chief ministers held here.

The home minister was referring to the Muzaffarabad rally organised by the Lashkar jehadi outfit through its banned frontal organisation the Jama'at-ud-Dawaah Thursday.

Attended by the Hizbul Mujahideen chief, the jehadi meeting vowed to revert to the "Kashmir freedom cause" and continue supporting a separatist campaign in the insurgency-riven state of India.

Chidambaram said infiltration attempts from across the border in Jammu and Kashmir had gone up.
