`India, US funding banned militant outfits in Pak`
Lahore: Pakistani intelligence agencies have alleged that their American, Indian and Afghan counterparts are financially supporting banned militant outfits in the country.
A circular issued to law enforcement agencies by the Interior Ministry`s National Crisis Management Cell (NCMC) has revealed that the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and India`s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) are funding Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan`s (TTP) Punjabi, Asmatullah Moavia, Ghulam Rabbani and Qari Kamran factions through Afghanistan’s Riyast-i-Amoor-o-Amanat-i-Milliyah (RAAM) and National Directorate of Security (NDS).
According to The Express Tribune, the banned outfits are planning attacks on sensitive instalments across the country, including Police Elite Force and Counterterrorism Department Headquarters in Lahore, the circular further revealed.
Reconnaissance of potential targets is already being conducted and the groups have earmarked potential suicide attackers, it added.
