Maintaining that Pakistan has not dismantled the terror infrastructure existing on its soil, India on Wednesday said the neighbouring country's intelligence agency ISI continues to provide 'directions' and 'logistics' support to terrorist groups like LeT active in India.
"We have not received any information on dismantling of terrorist training camps," Home Minister Shivraj V Patil said replying to supplementaries during the Question Hour in the Rajya Sabha in New Delhi.
He said information about existence of terrorist training camps was passed on to Pakistan during the Home Secretary-level talks between the two countries.
"Results have not been satisfactory. We are not satisfied," he said.
According to available inputs, ISI continues to provide directions and logistics support including recruitment, arms training and funds to terrorist outfits like Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Hizbul Mujahideen and Al-Badr for terrorist related activities in Jammu and Kashmir despite Government's peace initiatives and Prime Minister's invitation to separatist leaders for two Round Table conferences.
"Available inputs indicate Pakistan's ISI continues to remunerate terrorists for attacks on security forces and political leaders."
"The serial grenade attacks on April 14 and July 11, 2006 in Srinagar and killing of tourists are reportedly the result of directives received by the terrorist outfits from across the border," he said.
