New Delhi: Many militant training camps are active in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir (PcK) and such facilities are used for training and subsequently, infiltration into Jammu and Kashmir, Parliament was informed on Wednesday.
In a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha, Union Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy also said the government has consistently emphasised to Pakistan to put an end to cross-border infiltration of militants and dismantle the infrastructure supporting militancy on a permanent basis.
"According to reports, there are several militant training camps in Pakistan-controlled Jammu and Kashmir (PcK), which are used for training and subsequently for infiltrating trained militants into Jammu and Kashmir for militant activities. Some of these training camps are still active and imparting training to militants," he said.
The minister said the government has repeatedly raised the issue of Pakistan's continued support to cross-border militancy and infiltration in bilateral, regional and multilateral fora.
