Pakistan intends to kill Indian soldiers deployed in Kashmir by poisoning their ration, a note issued by the criminal investigation department of Jammu & Kashmir has revealed. The intelligence report says that Pakistan’s ISI and its agents are planning the move.
The letter reportedly states, “chatter floating by a Pakistani number claims that Pakistan MI (military intelligence) and ISI agents operation in Kashmir are planning to mix poison in ration stocks of security forces deployed in the region”.
In light of the intel, the J&K government has asserted necessary security measures must be taken to ensure the security of the ration deposits for the security personnel, especially in the state. It also remarks that ration procured for the use of security forces across India should be subjected to frequent checks to rule out any untoward incident or attempt.
The intel has come at a time when tensions have been prevailing between the two countries in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack and the subsequent airstrikes conducted by the Indian Air Force to eliminate terrorist camps across the border. Pakistani jets had attempted to attack Indian military installations in response to the airstrikes against the terror camps as well.
Things have escalated at the Line of Control as well as numerous reports have surfaced which indicate heavy shelling from both sides of the border.
