    46 Pak-based spy modules busted since '08

    New Delhi: Government on Tuesday said that the Pakistan's intelligence agency ISI continues to support various terrorist outfits to spread violence in India. It also said a total of 46 Pakistan-backed spy modules were busted by the security forces since 2008.

    "As per available intelligence inputs, Pakistan-based terrorist outfits, particularly Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), Hijbul Mujahideen etc., continue to receive support from ISI," MoS for home Jitendra Singh informed the Lok Sabha in a written reply.

    He said government was committed to combating terrorism, extremism and separatism in all its forms and manifestations as no cases, genuine or imaginary, could justify terrorism. Government, he said, has taken various measures in this regard.

    Replying to another question, the minister said as per available information, investigation into terrorism-related cases by state police forces and disclosures of arrested people revealed names of a few terrorist elements in Bihar having links with LeT.

    "On the basis of inputs, four LeT operatives of Bihar were identified and arrested between 2004 and 2009," he said.

    On Pakistan-backed spy modules, Singh said: "During the last three years and the current year (2008 to 2011 till date), a total of 46 Pakistan-backed espionage modules were busted in the country".

    However, Singh said, no cases of espionage, specifically by people working in foreign companies, have been reported. The minister said the government had been pursuing a well coordinated and multi-pronged approach to tackle such activities by strengthening the intelligence machinery, ensuring a close interaction and coordination between different agencies of the Centre and state governments.

    Should India work with Mossad to make life uncomfortable for ISI?
