According to reports, sources informed intelligence agency that Saeed has shifted his base to a LeT training camp in Muzaffarabad in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). Shifting base near India-Pakistan border will help Saeed to ensure that his elaborate strategy to terrorise India was implemented flawlessly.
Recently, it was reported that Saeed had asked the LeT militants to recruit homeless and jobless youths who lost everything in massive floods.
The agency inputs alerting the state security officials came just hours after Pentagon submitted a report to the US Congress saying Pakistan is using militant groups as proxies to counter the superior Indian military.
"Afghan-and Indian-focused militants continue to operate from Pakistan territory to the detriment of Afghan and regional stability. Pakistan uses these proxy forces to hedge against the loss of influence in Afghanistan and to counter India's superior military," the Pentagon told the Congress in its latest six-monthly report on the current situation in Afghanistan.
