52 terrorist training camps in Pak: India

August 02, 2006 15:26 IST

As many as 52 terrorist training camps are reported to be existing in Pakistan and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and the government is continuing to inform the international community of these developments, the Lok Sabha was informed on Wednesday.

Insurgent groups also continue to misuse Bangladesh territory for sanctuary, training camps, transportation of arms and transit and were being supported by intelligence agencies, both civil and military of Bangladesh.

This was stated by Minister of State for External Affairs E Ahmed in reply to a written question.

He said there were reportedly 52 terrorist camps in Pakistan and PoK and the government has, in its interaction at all levels, continuously stressed the fact that Islamabad needs to take effective steps to dismantle the infrastructure of support to terrorism on a permanent basis.

On Bangladesh, he said a list of 172 Indian insurgent group camps and 307 criminals and insurgents was handed over in the director general-level talks between Border Security Force and Bangaldesh Rifles in 2005, but Dhaka continues to maintain a "policy of complete denial".

Bangladesh government has conveyed that the draft extradition treaty forwarded in June 2003, was being examined and that it will expedite its response, he said.
