ISI pressing Indian terror suspects to launch attacks
Indian terror suspects who are enjoying the patronage of Pakistan's ISI are being pressed to launch terror attacks in the country. Official sources said many terrorists who have been given protection for quite a number of years have been asked to prove their worth or face consequences.

This was revealed during investigations into the alleged plans of Sikh militant group Babbar Khalsa International men to plant a bomb in the national capital and Himachal Pradesh. Sources said the men were being provided directions by Pakistan-based Wadhwa Singh and Parminder Singh, who figure in dossier of wanted terrorists passed to Pakistan recently.

"The men have been provided cover for so long. There are no free lunches in the world. They have to show their worth to enjoy the shelter of the ISI," a source said. He said attempts are being made by certain men to re-group and launch attacks on country's stability.

Sources said that with Commonwealth Games scheduled later this year, the terror groups being provided all help by ISI are under more pressure to launch attacks but are jittery over busting of various modules by police across the country. They said the efforts are to launch an attack and try to project the country as unsafe before the Games. They said the strategy would be to launch an attack through various groups based here rather than by those from outside the country.

Incidentally, on Wednesday, hundreds of armed militants including top LeT commander Abdul Wahid Kashmiri and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin had gathered in Kotli town of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) vowing to wage 'jihad' against India.

#1 "This was revealed during investigations into the alleged plans of Sikh militant group Babbar Khalsa International men to plant a bomb in the national capital and Himachal Pradesh"

One would presume that the main reason why Himachal Pradesh would be a target is the numerous Israeli tourists who visit the vacinity . Some villages have more Israelis in than locals . This links in nicely with ISI overall plans for disruption around the Kashhmiri area .

I have been to Himachal Pradesh several times and its a joy to visit, especially the Parvarti valley - the trout fishing is splendid and exciting (yes, fishing is exciting!) .

#2 Many Sikhs in the USA, UK, Canada and N Zealand should be in jail for funding the militancy. Not sure why RAW or CBI isn't pressing hard for this.

#3 Are there really sikhs out there who think they'll be able to get a better deal from WPL than they do from India?
