‘Govt keeping close eye on illegal foreign fundings in J&K’
Amid reports suggesting that Pakistan-based militant groups are sending donations to support their Kashmir campaign, Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju on Sunday said illegal inflow of money to Jammu and Kashmir would strictly be checked.
“Illegal inflow of money from outside will strictly be checked and we are doing it,” Rijiiju told the media. The intelligence agencies have submitted their reports to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) giving details of the anti-India activities across the border.
The report stated that Lashkar-e-Toiba chief Hafiz Saeed and Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin are collecting donations across Pakistan to support their Kashmir campaign.
The intelligence agencies have also reported that the terror organisations operating from Pakistan’s soil are planning fresh attacks on military installations in Jammu and Kashmir, Haryana, Delhi and Rajasthan.
The deputy Chief Minister of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, Nirmal Singh also came down heavily on Pakistan saying that, “Islamabad is hell bent upon creating trouble in the valley.” His comment came after recent encounters in Hindwara and Poonch of Kashmir. He also mentioned the violence in the valley as “condemnable action of Pakistan.”
The MHA has issued fresh alerts to the concerned states. Meanwhile, four terrorists have been killede in the ongoing encounter with the security forces in Nowgam.
Four weapons have so far been recovered from the slain terrorists, while search operation is still currently underway. As many as 12 civilians have been injured in a clash between the security forces and protesters in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir.
On the other hand, at least two to three terrorists are suspected to be around the mini-secreteriat in Allah Pir area of the valley and its Poonch district where an encounter occurred with security forces.
Kashmir is witnessing unrest since July 8, after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces.
