Militants using peace train to enter India

January 09, 2006 20:59 IST

Terrorists from Pakistan are entering India by the Samjhauta Express on the Wagah-Attari rail link, two militants, who were arrested recently, have told security forces.

The two Al-Jehad militants -- Saif Ali of Shiva village and Iftikhar Ali of Bharath village in Doda -- told interrogators that militant leaders are now finding it difficult to push the militants across the Line of Control or the International Border due to fencing.

They send the militants with fake passports either by the Samjhauta Express or route them via Nepal.

The two also revealed that at least 16 militants have used the Wagah-Attari rail link so far.

Even they had come to India by the Samjhauta Express on passports issued by Pakistani authorities.
