NEW DELHI (Web Desk) – On Tuesday, India summoned Pakistani High Commissioner to New Delhi, Abdul Basit, to lodge a protest against “continuing cross-border terrorism from Pakistan”.
India’s Ministry of External Affairs spokesman, Vikas Swarup, said Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar summoned the Pakistan envoy and specifically mentioned “a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist and Pakistani national Bahadur Ali, who was apprehended recently” in India-held Kashmir (IHK) and added that Bahadur Ali had confessed that after training in Lashkar-e-Taiba camps, he was infiltrated into India. He was thereafter in touch with an ‘operations room’ of LeT, receiving instructions to attack Indian security personnel and carry out other terrorist attacks in India.
