India said Thursday that it has & # 39; information & # 39; that Pakistan is trying to infiltrate terrorists in the country to carry out attacks amid growing tensions over New Delhi's decision to repeal the autonomy of Kashmir occupied by the Indians.
The spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of India, Raveesh Kumar, told reporters that the Indian security forces were prepared to face any eventuality.
He was reacting to reports from the Indian media citing unidentified Indian intelligence sources saying that the trained commandos in Pakistan allegedly entered Indian waters to attack port facilities in the western state of Gujarat.
He said Pakistan is trying to infiltrate terrorists to create & # 39; an alarmist situation & # 39; after New Delhi imposed a blockade and ended the autonomy of occupied Kashmir earlier this month.
Pakistan's army spokesman, Major General Asif Ghafoor, rejected the claim of the Indians and said that Pakistan was a responsible state and that "we would be crazy if we allowed infiltration" through the control line.
Kumar said Pakistan "has been using terror and cross-border terrorism as a policy. We have continued to stress that Pakistan has an obligation to act against terrorists and terrorist groups operating from its territory."
The Indian claim comes when Prime Minister Imran Khan in recent days repeatedly alerted the international community that India will possibly carry out a "false flag operation" to "divert attention from massive human rights violations" in Kashmir busy
India accuses Pakistan of training and arming insurgent groups that have been fighting since 1989 for the independence of Kashmir from India or its merger with Pakistan, a charge that Islamabad denies. Pakistan says it only provides moral and diplomatic support to these groups.
