Terrorism in India
New Delhi, Nov 22: The government today (Nov 22) said Pakistan's spy agency ISI continues to support various terrorist outfits to spread violence in India.

"...As per available intelligence inputs, Pakistan-based terrorist outfits, particularly Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Hijbul Mujahideen etc., continue to receive support from ISI," Minister of State for Home Jitendra Singh informed Lok Sabha in a written reply.

He said the government was committed to combating terrorism, extremism and separatism in all its forms and manifestation as no cases, genuine or imaginary, could justify terrorism. Government, he said, has taken various measures in this regard.
