Prime News, National (New Delhi), Sept 17:- A meeting of all intelligence agencies and the heads of anti-terror units from all states is being held in the national capital today to discuss the implications of the Taliban’s takeover in Afghanistan and how Pakistan may exploit the situation to work against India.
There are concerns that Pakistan would eventually use Afghan soil to shelter, train, plan and finance terror groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed to foment trouble in India, especially in Jammu and Kashmir.
“The purpose of the meeting is to streamline the exchange of intelligence inputs and better coordination,” said a senior officer of the Delhi Police, which is hosting the meeting.
The Delhi Police comes under the Home Ministry.
Radicalisation and threats emerging from India’s neighbours are the two key points to be discussed in the day-long meeting, the officer said.
“The situation is changing drastically and threats have become very live from these two regions. So potential threat assessments will be made and discussed,” a senior Home Ministry officer said, asking not to be named. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
