Early Times Report

JAMMU, Aug 26: Authorities and security forces involved in anti-insurgency operations in Jammu & Kashmir are confronted with a new strategy adopted by anti-India elements to get
arms training in Pakistan. According to credible sources, New recruits travel on "valid visas and infiltrate back into the Valley through the treacherous Line of Control after receiving training".
Sources say that "out of the five Kashmiri militants killed along the LoC in Kupwara this year, at least four had visited Pakistan through the Wagah border on valid documents". All the militants five were buried in Kupwara as they were believed to be from Pakistan". Their bodies had to be exhumed after "their families identified them".
Terming it a "new phenomenon, J&K DGP SP Vaid was quoted as saying: "While many such militants have been detained, it seems they are now finding it hard to return via Wagah and are taking the LoC route".
Sources further claimed that "a 'well-knit militant network' is managing visas and documents", that "the individuals first acquire a passport and get a recommendation letter from their contact to obtain a visa from the Pakistan High Commission" and that "the purpose of visit mentioned is usually meeting a relative or studies".
In the meantime, according to sources, "intelligence agencies have been alerted at Wagah, while youths intending to visit Pakistan have been advised to get clearance from SSPs".
