ISI transporting hundreds of tribal Pashtuns to PoK to carry out attacks against India: Report

Days ahead of Islamabad's plan to raise the Kashmir issue at United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, locals in Pakistan have claimed that hundreds of tribal Pashtuns have been transported into Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) by the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) to carry out anti-India activities.

Sources told Times Now that these individuals are being used to strengthen the Jihadi terror groups in the region who have ambitions to carry out attacks on India. Visuals accessed by the channel showed buses carrying locals heading towards PoK.

The developments within PoK come a day after India's External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said that one day 'India will have physical jurisdiction over PoK'.

"Our position on PoK has always been and will always be very clear. PoK is a part of India and we expect one day that we will have the physical jurisdiction over it," Jaishankar said during a press briefing in New Delhi on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, residents in PoK have been raising voices against Islamabad for human rights violations in the region. In fact, on September 13, 10 individuals were detained for shouting slogans against PM Imran Khan during his rally in PoK's Muzaffarabad.

On Tuesday, agency reports citing Indian Army sources had suggested that Pakistan Army was using dormant routes to push terrorists into Jammu and Kashmir. Earlier, Khan had threatened of 'consequences' over the Kashmir issue and said — "If say Pakistan, God forbid, we are fighting a conventional war, we are losing, and if a country is stuck between the choice: either you surrender or you fight 'til death for your freedom, I know Pakistanis will fight to death for their freedom. So when a nuclear-armed country fights to the end, to the death, it has consequences."
