    'JeM setting up huge training base in Pak's Punjab'

    London, Sept 13 (PTI) Outlawed terror group Jaish-e- Mohammad, linked to 2001 attack on the Indian Parliament and the beheading of US journalist Daniel Pearl, is setting up a large new base just outside Bahawalpur town in Pakistan's Punjab province with anti-India inscriptions on its walls.

    Pakistani authorities have turned a blind eye to the 6.5 acre base, located in the south of Punjab province, even though it is believed to serve as a radical madrassa or some kind of training camp, The Sunday Telegraph reported.

    The terror group was formed by Maulana Masood Azhar, who was released from Indian jail in exchange for passengers of a hijacked Indian plane in 1999, with help from Pakistan's powerful spy agency ISI to be used against India, and the two organisations are understood to remain close, the report said.
