Sushilkumar Shinde
New Delhi, Oct 21: Accusing Pakistan of fomenting trouble in India, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said it was helping terrorists to infiltrate into the country.

"We have information that Pakistan is helping terrorists to enter our territory. We have intelligence inputs. But we are alert," he told reporters here on Sunday.

The home minister said his ministry has directed all concerned to be extra vigilant during the ongoing festival season and ensure peace. "I also appeal people to be extra careful," he said.

Referring to Jammu and Kashmir, Shinde said security forces cannot be withdrawn from the Valley till the situation is completely peaceful there.

"When I was in Jammu and Kashmir, locals asked me to remove the Army from the Valley but I told them that we can't do it till the situation is peaceful. We will remove the Army when the situation is peaceful," he said.

Shinde said he had visited the Indo-Bangladesh border on Saturday and assessed the situation there.
