Pak plans to push terrorists to create mayhem in India: PC


He said Pakistan has no (no) will to prosecute and punish the perpetrators of last year's Mumbai attacks and voiced concern over the spread of Taliban in that country, apprehending that the danger could spread to the rest of South Asia including India.
"We go by the information or intelligence that we are able to gather. Our assessment of the inputs flowing into India is that the LeT, the JeM and the Hizbul Mujahideen are planning to infiltrate terrorists into India.

"Now obviously they are not (not) trying to infiltrate for tourism purposes. They are being infiltrated to India to create mayhem here. Therefore, we say that the threat level has not (not) diminished. That is what the Prime Minister said (in the Commanders Conference). There are many attempts which have been foiled even before they could (materialise)," he said.

Asked how well prepared the country was to meet terrorism inspired from across the border, Chidambaram said, "We are prepared to meet any external threat. As I said, we are building capacity every day, every week, every month. But, in today's world, being vigilant and alert is a 24/7 function."
