New Delhi: In more challenge for the Indian security forces, a report on Thursday claimed that Lashkar-e-Toiba and Jaish-e-Muhammad have set up terror camps in Pakistan's Punjab province, which is adjacent to the Indian borders.

The report said the terrorists are being trained by Pakistani Army.

It further stated that the terrorists belonging to the dreaded Pak-based terror groups are trying to infiltrate and planning to execute Pathankot-type attack in India.

India has maintained that JeM was behind the Pathankot airbase attackers. A five-member joint investigating team (JIT) from Pakistan visited India in March to probe the Pathankot attack in which JeM militants attacked the Indian air base on January 2 and killed seven security personnel. The attack has led to a downslide in bilateral ties.

Lashkar has been behind numerous terror attacks across the country. The 26/11 Mumbai attacks were executed by the LeT.

Pakistan has not taken "sufficient action" against terror groups like LeT and JeM, the US recently said, while noting that these outfits continue to operate, train, organise and fundraise in that country.

The State Department in its annual 'Country Reports on Terrorism - 2015' report said some UN-designated terrorist groups, such as Lashkar and Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) and Falah-e-Insaniyat Foundation (FiF) were able to raise funds and hold rallies in Pakistan.
