ISI doubles incentives for terrorist outfits

January 06, 2003 14:52 IST

The Inter-Services Intelligence has doubled the incentive for terrorist organisations carrying out attacks in India.

According to a report submitted to the government, it has set up a Refugee Maintenance Cell, which provides daily allowances to terrorists of every outfit.

Quoting interrogation reports of several terrorists arrested by security forces, the report says that a retired Pakistani colonel, Abdul Rehman, heads the RMC.

Rehman, who has served in Bangladesh, is also responsible for providing additional allowances to terrorists staying in refugee camps. The inmates of these camps are shown to the world community as migrants from Jammu and Kashmir.

The amount spent on launching of terrorist detachments into the valley is taken from the operational money, the report says and adds that every outfit has its launching detachments located along the Line of Control.

The report says that as per the new formula, small terrorist outfits like the Al-Barq get Rs 700,000 per month for their operational expenses while larger organisations like the Hizbul Mujahideen receive nearly Rs 5 million.

The money is handed over to the outfit's branch in Pakistan, which then sends it across the border, the report says.

It says that in order to maintain an easy flow of money into the valley, the ISI has enlisted several Dubai-based businessmen.

A brigadier, positioned at a camp called ‘Hamza' in Rawalpindi, pays the money to the terrorist outfits, the report says.

Separate funds are given to run the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir chapter of the All-Party Hurriyat Conference. A large amount of money is also passed on to separatist leaders in Jammu and Kashmir, who give it to the victims of violence.

The Hizbul Mujahideen is the only organisation that gets funds from the Jamaat-e-Ialami of Pakistan in addition to what it gets from the ISI, the report says. It is also the only outfit that, besides other benefits, is provided with Rs 500 as personal expenses to each of its cadre.
