Has the worst nightmare for security forces come true? Is the Taliban now in Kashmir? There are reports that about 30 Taliban fighters have sneaked into Kashmir.

Taliban in Kashmir?

  • 30 Taliban fighters in Kashmir?
  • Radio talk between Lashkar operatives intercepted

    Transcripts of the taped conversations available with NDTV show that the Lashkar is in fact worried about Taliban presence in Kashmir.

    Transcript of the intercepted conversation:
    LeT man 1: What were you saying?
    LeT man 2: I was saying that new people who have come are all Taliban. They are only talking about killing and getting killed. We are very disturbed because of them.
    LeT man 1: Throw them out from there.
    LeT man 2: For that I will have to speak to ‘Big Brother’.
    LeT man 1: Ok

    It’s worrying factor that Taliban is so close from India? Approximately 220 km is the distance between the Taliban dominated areas of NWFP in Pakistan and the Line of Control.

    Home Minister P Chidambaram has commented on the infiltration threat and said that different terrorist organisations are working in tandem.

    “There is a determined effort to infiltrate across the international border, the distinction between the different organisations has disappeared. But our security forces are alert and they’ve been able to neutralise these infiltrators in the last 3-4 weeks. And I am confident that with the heightened sense of vigilance and alertness they will be able to neutralise infiltrators across the border,” said P Chidambaram, Union Home Minister.
