Arrest of a Karachi based Lashkar-e-Taiba militant from north Kashmir recently has exposed the nexus between the ISI, Pakistani army and terrorist outfits for carrying out acts of terror in Kashmir, Indian Army's 15 Corps general officer commanding (GOC) Lt Gen Syed Atta Hasnain said on Sunday.
Speaking at a function in north Kashmir's Trehgam area, Hasnain said, "There is complicity of ISI and Pakistan army in setting up the terror infrastructure in Pakistani hinterland and Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK)."
Accusing Pakistan of spreading terror and disrupting peace and harmony in Kashmir "as part of its overall Kashmir policy", Hasnain said the arrest of a Pakistani militant has once again exposed the nexus.
The army recently arrested a Pakistani militant, Nisar Ahmad, a resident of Karachi, near the Line of Control in Kupwara district. The militant was part of the LeT's seven-member group, which tried to infiltrate into Kashmir.
"The militant admitted he was trained at a LeT training facility at Mansehra by the members of Pakistan army and ISI headed by Abdullah Shaheen," said the army.
The militant "received training with 12 LeT militants at the camp near Jamgrah".
"Finally the militants were taken to Kel Military Garrison in Pakistan occupied Kashmir," said the army.
Kel Military Garrison is near Machil sector of the valley.
"The militant admitted that before trying to infiltrate to this part of Kashmir, their group was briefed by the members of army and ISI," said the army.
