New Delhi: The government on Tuesday said
Pakistan`s spy agency ISI continues to support various
terrorist outfits to spread violence in India.

"...As per available intelligence inputs, Pakistan-based
terrorist outfits, particularly Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-
Mohammed, Hijbul Mujahideen etc., continue to receive support
from ISI," Minister of State for Home Jitendra Singh informed
Lok Sabha in a written reply.

He said government was committed to combating terrorism,
extremism and separatism in all its forms and manifestation 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
persons 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 2004-2009," he said.
