New Delhi: The central intelligence agencies have warned of a possibility of major terror strikes being carried out on the Indian soil by ISI-favoured in the coming months.

The central agencies have received specific inputs about a recent meeting between commanders of three Islamic terror outfits- Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Hizbul Mujahideen and Jaish-e-Muhammed (JeM) and the Pakistan’s ISI wherein the latter has instructed the terror outfits to carry out attacks on Indian soil.

The reports suggest that, ISI is not only providing logistic support for carrying out the attacks, but it also held a detailed briefing of 30 terrorists from the three outfits in a camp somewhere in Pak-occupied Kashmir (POK).

According to the sources, the meeting was headed by the ISI handler Showkat Khan alias Abu Suleman. The terrorists are reported to have been highly trained and have been instructed to cross the border into India before the snow blocks the routes in the upper reaches.

The Indian agencies have been quoted as saying: “We are making every possible attempt to get all details of the operation which has been planned by the Pakistani establishment with the terror outfits.”

Meanwhile, the Center has asked the security agencies to intensify vigil along LOC and the international border.

The Pakistan government has decided to shelve a major power project under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) that was pushed by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s regime, the media reported on Monday.

Background discussions with government officials suggest that Islamabad has officially conveyed to Beijing that it was no more interested in the 1,320MW Rahim Yar Khan power project in view of sufficient generation capacity already lined up for the next few years, Dawn news reported.

It has requested China to formally delete the project from the CPEC list.

During the 8th Joint Coordination Committee (JCC) meeting held last month, a Pakistani delegation led by Minister for Planning and Development Makhdoom Khusro Bakhtyar “proposed to remove the Rahim Yar Khan imported fuel power plant (1,320MW) from the CPEC list, in order to provide structure optimisation space for the subsequent power market of Pakistan”, a government official said.

The project was originally pushed as an imported coal-based plant by Quaid-i-Azam Thermal Company of the Punjab government led by former Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif.

A leading business tycoon had proposed the project and was expected to be one of its key sponsors.

The official said Prime Minister Imran Khan’s government has also decided to remove almost 400 “politically motivated” Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP) projects as part of a comprehensive mid-year review later this month.

“We are reviewing all such schemes in detail; we do not want to waste public funds where lien has been created or sufficient progress achieved, but we definitely don’t like to throw good money after bad,” a cabinet member told Dawn. (IANS)
