New Delhi: The government is aware of a nexus between Maoists and insurgents in India`s northeast but not with the Pakistani intelligence, Minister of State for Home RPN Singh said Tuesday.
The minister told the Lok Sabha that there was no evidence of such a link among the Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) of Pakistan, the Maoists and the northeast rebels.
"However, there is evidence of a nexus between the Maoists and certain insurgent groups of the northeast," he said. "The government is closely monitoring the situation."
