63 army officers found to have links with ISI: Fernandes
NEW DELHI: Sixty-three former and serving army officers have been found to have links with Pakistani secret service agents over the past three years, Indian Defence Minister George Fernandes said on Thursday.
In a written reply to a question in the lower house of parliament, the minister said cases had been registered against the officers alleged to have links with the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI).
He said of the 46 serving officers, the services of six have been terminated and cases against others were proceeding. “Necessary counter-intelligence measures exist to curb such incidents. However, the security agencies concerned have been sensitised,” Fernandes said.
70 camps still operating in AJK: Some 70 militants’ training camps still exist in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir despite claims by Islamabad that they have all been dismantled, an Indian defence ministry source said on Thursday.
“There are around 70 training camps still existing in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. Their location may have changed. This information has been shared with the United States at the appropriate level,” the source told reporters. —AFP
