April 30, 2003 15:33 IST
The Indian Army on Wednesday said foreign mercenaries operating in Jammu and Kashmir possess chemical weapons.
Quoting 'recent' intelligence reports, Lieutenant Colonel S P K Singh of the Northern Command Headquarters said, "Over the past two to three months, the army has been consistently receiving information that foreign terrorists in the state have been moving with suspicious looking containers. But recent intelligence inputs have suggested that terrorists have been talking about use of poisonous gas."
These reports are of great significance in light of American concern about chemical weapons and other Weapons of Mass Destruction falling in the hands of terrorist groups here, he added.
