Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Tayyeba (LeT) is still active and there is a “real risk” that the terror group may target India again to increase tensions between the two neighbours, a top UN official said.

“Lashkar-e-Tayyeba tactics is quite obvious. It is trying to increase tensions between India and Pakistan at a time when they are particularly under pressure in western Pakistan,” said Richard Barrett, Coordinator of the UN Security Council’s Al Qaeda and Taliban Sanctions Monitoring Committee.

“The Pakistan-Afghan border and North Africa were the main contributors to the sanctions list for Al Qaeda and Taliban operatives.”
