The report also mentioned how Radio Pakistan and 'Azad Kashmir Radio' acted as a bridge between the infiltrators and their masters and helped establish communication channels for them.

All this is part of psychological warfare which appears to be the latest tool being used by Pakistani agencies to fuel tension in India. Not only along India's Western border, the Pakistani agencies are active even in Bangladesh where they support some radical groups. Bangladesh is aware of ISI's nefarious designs. Dhaka fears that the ISI will use the Rohingya refugees to prop up the Jammat-e-Islami, Bangladesh and other associated political groups to foment trouble.

Bangladesh Government believes that the Pakistan High Commission in Dhaka has emerged as a centre of anti-government activities as well as activities against India too. In Nepal, Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) is establishing itself and is plotting to launch attacks on Indian soil.
