Alert to States on ISI drive among 'Rohingyas'

10th July 2013 09:42 AM 

Concerned over reports of the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence agency-backed attempts by the Harkat-ul-Jihad(HuJI) and Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) terror outfits to recruit the ‘Rohingyas’ to avenge the ongoing communal strife in Myanmar, intelligence agencies have issued an alert to the border states.

Sources said the inputs received by the agencies suggest that the ISI is facilitating the recruitment of vulnerable ‘Rohingyas’ and providing training to the terror recruits in the camps run by the LeT, with active HuJi support.

“Since 2012, several thousand ‘Rohingyas’  illegally entered the Indian territory through Bangladesh and are staying at several cities demanding refugee status. Given the fact that the LeT and HuJI called for revenge in Myanmar, there could be serious security implications for India,” sources said.

In the wake of the Bodh Gaya serial blasts, security agencies have asked the border forces to beef up the security along the India-Bangladesh border, that provides safe routes for the ‘Rohingya’ people fleeing Myanmar.

Although, the refugees are not under the scanner, security agencies do not rule out infiltration by cadre masquerading as illegal immigrants. “An alert was issued to Karnataka, J&K, Assam, Hyderabad, Rajasthan and UP to remain vigilant in the aftermath of the Mahabodhi Temple attack.  Similar alerts were issued to all the border states to prevent illegal immigration,” an official said.
