Terrorist outfits Lashkar-e-Tayiba and Babbar Khalsa have reportedly joined hands and set up about a dozen militant training camps at different places in Pakistan, intelligence sources said.

They said the two terrorist outfits have now been working jointly to carry terrorist and disruptive activities in India and have opened new training camps where activists from both the outfits were taking training.

The sources said the training camps being run in Rawalpindi and Karachi districts and some places in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir were allegedly imparting training for improvised explosive device blasts, grenade attacks and other operations.

LeT commander in chief Azam Cheema had reportedly been coordinating operations in training camps, the sources added.

Cheema had been undertaking extensive tours to various places including madrassas for inspiring and enrolling youth for the camps and raising funds for training.

The intelligence sources also maintained that Pakistan's intelligence agency Inter Services Intelligence had also been extending full assistance, including procurement of services of its army officers for training at the camps.
