killed by Indian forces. There were also names of another 10
arrested and lodged in jails.

are operating from Pakistan against India including Maulana
Masood Azhar and 26/11 mastermind Hafeez Sayeed. It also has
names of several members of `D` company.

Sharing the lists with officials like Secretary of
State Hillary Clinton and Homeland Security Secretary Janet

elements.

publicity blitzkrieg in Pakistani media about the activities
of the terrorists belonging to that country in India. The
campaign could be in the form of advertisement.
