New Delhi: India on Wednesday said involvement
of State actors in Pakistan with terrorist groups has come to
light on a number of occasions, including in the 26/11
attacks, and terror infrastructure continues to exist in that
country.
"Inputs from central security agencies and through
various open sources confirm that terrorist infrastructure
continues to exist in Pakistan and Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir
by way of numerous training camps, communication centres and
launching pads," Minister of State for Home Gurudas Kamat told
Rajya Sabha in reply to a question.
He said that "involvement of State actors with these
terrorist outfits has come to light on a number of occasions
and also in 26/11 terrorist attacks in Mumbai".

The Minister said government continues to be alert to
these threats and has re-calibrated its measures to combat
terrorism by way of reviewing threat perceptions and a number
of important decisions and measures have been taken.
These steps include augmenting the strength of
central paramilitary forces, effective border management
through border fencing, flood lighting, deployment of
surveillance equipment, legally enabling deployment of CISF in
joint venture and private industrial undertakings,
establishment of NSG hubs at Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad and
Mumbai and tighter immigration control.

Replying another question, Kamat said India has
consistently emphasised to Pakistan the need to implement its
solemn commitments, including those given at the highest
level, that it would not permit the territory under Pakistan`s
control to be used to support terrorism against India in any
manner.
