In 2019, the Intelligence Bureau had warned that Pakistan is activating its K2 operation or desk. In Kashmir, it has roped in the JeM, while in Punjab it is the Khalistan Zindabad Force (KZF).
New Delhi, May 12: The bonding between the terror groups from Pakistan and the Khalistan forces courtesy the ISI is a well known fact. For years now the ISI has brought together these two forces with a sole intent of causing damage in India, especially in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) and Punjab.
A report in the Times of India said that a new group called the Lashkar-e-Khalsa had been formed by the Kashmir-Khalistan (K2) desk of the ISI. This group is on overdrive mode to recruit youth on the social media, the report also added.
They are in unauthorised possession/involved in acquisition of key assets for raising terror funds and working in active collaboration with international terrorist organisation including Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) and Al Qaeda (AQ).
New Delhi, May 10: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) conducted raids at 24 locations in the Mumbai Commissionerate and five places in Mira Road Bhayandar Commissionerate on Monday.
The case on hand pertained to the criminal activities of international terrorist network of the Dawood Ibrahim Company or D-Company. The NIA said that the case involves Dawood Ibrahim and his associates including Haji Anees, Shakeel Shaikh alias Chhota Shakeel, Javed China, Tiger Memon.
New Delhi, Jan 31: On Sunday, the Jammu and Kashmir police gunned down five terrorists including top Jaish-e-Mohammad-e-Mohammad commander, Zahid Wani.
The killing of Wani is significant as he was one of the top wanted terrorists and was leading the outfit in the Valley. He took over as the commander of the JeM following the arrest of Sameer Dar in Srinagar in 2016. Officials tell OneIndia that Wani was key to the JeM as he provided both logistic support and planned attacks.
New Delhi, Jan 30: Five terrorists have been shot down in two separate encounters in Jammu and Kashmir. One of the five terrorists who was killed is a Jaish-e-Mohammad operative.
The encounters took place in Pulwama and Budgam.
“5 terrorists of Pakistan sponsored proscribed terror outfits LeT and JeM killed in dual encounters in last 12 hours. JeM commander terrorist Zahid Wani and a Pakistani terrorist among the killed. Big success for us,” a tweet by the J@K police read.
New Delhi, Jan 17: The National Investigation Agency has filed a chargesheet against four terrorists of the Lashkar-e-Mustafa in connection with a criminal conspiracy case.
The NIA charged Mohammad Arman Ali, Mohammad Ehsanullah, Imran Ahmad Hajam and Irfan Ahmad Dar. The case relates to the hatching of a conspiracy by the operatives of the LeM at the behest of the Jaish-e-Mohammad-e-Mohammad to carry out acts of terror in the Jammu area with an intention of threatening the sovereignty, integrity and security of India.
New Delhi, Oct 13: A top commander of the Jaish-e-Mohammad Sham Sofi was killed in an encounter today with security forces in the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir.
The forces acted on specific inputs about the presence of Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists in the Tilwani Mohalla Waggad in the Tral area. Following this the security forces launched a cordon and search operation there, police officials said.
New Delhi, Aug 31: When the Taliban took over Afghanistan, the Intelligence agencies in India had warned that terror groups operating in Jammu and Kashmir would get a morale boost. While the chances of the Taliban fighters entering the Valley remains remote as of now, the fact is that the terror groups such as the Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e-Tayiba have been trying to up the ante.
Officials OneIndia spoke with said that they have noticed enhanced activity by the two terror groups.
The Taliban’s victory in Afghanistan is being cited by the handlers in a bid to boost the morale of the terrorists, the official cited above also said.
The morale has been down following the gunning down of 102 terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir this year alone. Prior to this Pakistan backed terrorists had enhanced drone activity, but the numbers have fallen drastically after new surveillance systems had been installed.
New Delhi, Aug 30: The meeting between the leaders of the Jaish-e-Mohammad and Taliban has come under the radar of the Indian Intelligence agencies. The meeting that took place last week focused on India centric operations with the JeM seeking the help of the Taliban.
After the Taliban took over Afghanistan, several JeM terrorists were freed from jails and the concern for India is that these persons may be used to carry out strikes in India. While the Taliban is unlikely to spread its tentacles into Jammu and Kashmir, it could still provide support to the JeM which has its eyes focused on J&K.
The Intelligence Agencies are now focusing on social media accounts. Added to this ANI reported that the agencies are also keeping a close watch on two terrorists from Pakistan who are planning grenade attacks in Srinagar.
