India tells BD to curb ISI operations
DHAKA: Indian Deputy Prime Minister L K Advani on Saturday said Bangladesh has been told to curb infiltration and prevent Pakistan Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) operations from its soil aimed against India.
At a Parliamentary Consultative Committee meeting of the home ministry at the Border Security Force academy in Teranpur, Madhya Pradesh, he said Indian reservations on the issue, which led to border tension between the two countries recently, were conveyed to the Bangladesh foreign minister during his visit to New Delhi.
The Bangladeshi Foreign Minister Morshed Khan gave an assurance that his country would take necessary steps in this regard, Advani said.
India blames Bangladesh for not doing enough to curb terrorist activities by Al Qaeda network and ISI. Dhaka feels embarrassed and had always denied their existence.
The deputy PM also told them that Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf was under tremendous international pressure, but was not doing enough to check cross-border terrorism.
