ISLAMABAD: Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Tuesday confirmed that 10 to 15 people violated India border by barging into the Gujrat state of the neighbouring country.
Speaking during the Senate session today, he said actions of several ‘non-state actors’ create problems for the country and its institutions.
“We are trying to get rid of such elements on both civil and military level,” he added.
The statement comes days after Pakistan National Security Advisor Nasir Khan Janjua shared the intelligence input with his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval about the possible terror strikes in Gujrat.
The Indian state was put on high-alert on Saturday after the reports of about 10 militants entering the country. The terrorists were said to belong to the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammed militant groups.
According to the reports, security was beefed up at sensitive installations, places of worship, and public places, while the leaves of all police officers and security personnel in Gujrat were cancelled until further notice after the Indian government forwarded Pakistani intelligence input to the state government.
