Sardar Raees Inqlabi, a leader in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), has accused Pakistan of paying massive sums of money to terrorists who cross the Line-of-Control (LoC).

Inqlabi stated that these terrorists were pushed across the border and turned into "bombs"; they were also paid Rs.1 crore to do so.

He also questioned Pakistan's motive for allowing banned terror-outfits to "have a free hand in PoK".

BackgroundPakistan's stand on supporting terror

Pakistan has consistently pleaded innocence with respect to involvement in terror-related activities especially in regards to India.

However, according to official estimates, in this year alone, the Pakistani Army has violated the 2003 ceasefire arrangement between India and Pakistan, over 440 times along the Line-of-Control (LoC).

As recently as last month, Indian security forces released video evidence that showed infiltration attempts by Pakistan-backed terrorists.

How?Pakistan aiding terrorists

According to official reports, over 100 militants that claim allegiance to terrorist groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen, reside in terror training camps in PoK and wait for opportune moments to cross into India.

The Pakistani Army reportedly aids the infiltration by providing cover fire at the time terrorists are crossing the LoC and by sheltering them prior to their journey into India.
