Pakistan’s ISI has started making attempts to hamper the upcoming panchayat elections in Jammu and Kashmir. According to sources, the ISI has constantly been pressuring terrorists in the state to carry out attacks. For this purpose, the spy agency of Pakistan has deputed its officials at Jamaat-ud-Dawa offices in Lahore and Karachi.
The ISI operatives, stationed at the offices of most wanted terrorist Hafiz Saeed’s JuD offices, are carrying out online campaigns for terrorists. Sources have told Zee News that the ISI has hired technical experts for the purpose and is paying them a salary between Rs 12,000 and Rs 20,000.
Since the recent incident of killing of a Border Security Force (BSF) jawan, several personnel of country’s first line of defence have been receiving calls from numbers from Pakistan.
Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said that the civic bodies and panchayat elections in Jammu and Kashmir will be held as per the schedule. The panchayat elections are expected to begin from November 17 and will be held in nine phases. The civic polls are likely to begin on October 8, and will be held in four phases.
