India summons Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit
New Delhi: The New Delhi on Tuesday summoned Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit after a Lashkar-e-Taibaa (LeT) terrorist was caught alive in Kashmir.
With this, India has presented one more evidence to Pakistan on its support to cross-border terrorism.
The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) statement read:
"We strongly protest against the continued infiltration of terrorists with instructions to carry out attacks in Indian from Pakistan," said an MEA statement.
Bahadur Ali, the terrorist who was caught alive, has been interrogated by the sleuths of National Investigation Agency (NIA). He was apparently part of a group whose other members were killed by the forces.
The Government of India has maintained that violence in Kashmir was a handiwork being carried out by Pakistan supported terrorist outfits.
The NIA investigation concluded that Bahadur Ali also operates under an alias, Abu Saifullah, from Jia Bagga in Raiwind, Lahore.
