Guwahati, Nov 29: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday said state actors of Pakistan are playing a role to destabilise India.
Mentioning the gun battle that started Thursday in Jammu and Kashmir's Arnia sector, he said Pakistan's claim that "non state actors are behind such incidents is not true". Attacking Pakistan, the Home Minister asked whether ISI is also non-state actor.
Eleven people were killed in the gunfight that ended Friday. The Minister was addressing the 49th All India DGPs and IGPs conference here.
Earlier, the Security forces busted a militant hideout and recovered arms and ammunition in Doda district of Jammu and Kashmir, a defence spokesman said.
Acting on specific intelligence inputs, Rashtriya Rifles and police launched a joint search operation and busted the hideout in Marmat in Bhaderwah tehsil of Doda district on Friday, he said.
The recoveries from the hideout include an AK-47 rifle, a chinese pistol, two .303 rifle, three 12 bore gun, one sniper rifle, one country-made pistol, four magazines of AK-47 and three magazines of .303 rifle, he said.
