New Delhi: Intelligence inputs indicate that the Lashkar-e-Taiba and the Indian Mujahideen are scrounging for a window to carry out terrorist attacks in India while there are no such hints from the Taliban, the government said on Tuesday. Minister of State for Home RPN Singh told the Lok Sabha that the Babbar Khalsa International and the Khalistan Tiger Force too fell in the category of groups planning to stage attacks in India.
Intelligence inputs show that the four groups, including the Pakistan-based Laskhar, have "abiding interest" in carrying out terrorist violence in the country, Singh said. "The central intelligence agencies have no specific inputs indicating threat from Taliban," he added.
The minister said there was "a very close and effective coordination" among intelligence agencies in the central and state levels and this had "resulted in bursting of terrorist modules". He said the Multi Agency Centre had been strengthened and reorganized to enable it to function on 24x7 basis for real time collation and sharing of intelligence with other intelligence agencies.
