Terrorists from the Jaish-e-Mohammed and the Lashkar-e-Taiba groups are part of Pakistani Border Action (BAT) teams that attack Indian security forces, exclusive photos accessed by India Today TV show.
The photos (see above) are of a service rifle, a bulletproof jacket, a mobile phone and magazines which belonged to Narender Singh, a Border Security Force (BSF) jawan who was killed at the International Border last month. His body was mutilated; his throat was slit, and his eyes gouged out.
Narender Singh’s belongings were with the Jaish-e-Mohammed in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
Here’s what the BSF said in a release last month: “…an unprovoked firing was started by Pakistan in Ramgarh sector, Jammu, on a BSF party which went ahead of fence [sic] for clearing elephant grass (Sarkanda). Such a tactical patrol is routinely sent to clear the wild vegetation for clearing the field of view along the International Boundary.”
“This area also carries importance, as the Pakistan side has a protective bundh closer to the IB. The firing of Pakistan side has been retaliated by the patrol [sic] and they tactically extricated themselves to the own side of the fence. The patrol found one of their members missing.”
“With the reinforcement from company headquarters, the complete area was sanitised first, and then the search started for the missing jawan. After 8 hours, the mutilated body of the jawan was recovered near the fence,” the BSF said.
Singh’s killing was considered to be a reason to suspend any dialogue with Pakistan.
The photos India Today TV has accessed add weight to the Indian government’s argument that the Pakistan Army and Rangers not only help Pakistan-based terrorist groups inflitrate the IB and the Line of Control (LoC), but use them as BAT members.
