ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) - Minister for Defence, Khawaja Asif said Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) was fighting as India’s proxy against Pakistan.

Speaking to Geo TV on late Tuesday, Khawaja Asif said there has been a nexus between Indian intelligence agencies and terrorists operating in Pakistan.

The Defence Minister said this has been the situation in Pakistan since it launched operation Zarb-e-Azb in the tribal belt against the local and foreign terrorists.

He said the Balochistan province was facing Indian sponsored unrest. “Our soldiers are battling against the Taliban militants as an enemy,” he said.
