India To Raise Pakistan Role In Kashmir Unrest25 February 2011
New Indian Express
New Delhi: India is all set to confront Pakistan on its involvement in the violent protests in Kashmir and pumping loads of fake Indian currency notes (FICN) with an aim to destabilise Indiaís economy, besides the burning issue of laxity in 26-11 terror attacks probe during the Home Secretary-level talks to be held on March 28 and 29 in New Delhi. Sources said the agencies were preparing a dossier that would have enough evidence to prove Pakistanís involvement in fuelling Kashmir unrest through money flow to the militants and hardline separatists. It would also include irrefutable telephone intercepts from across the border giving directions to the individuals, interrogation reports, propaganda and certain details of the money flow through Hawala transactions and money transfers through Western Union. Home Secretary G K Pillai is also expected to confront his counterpart Chaudhry Qamar Zaman directly on the glaring involvement of Pakistani establishmentís involvement in pumping FICN in India for destabilising economy and terror funding. Pakistan, however, will not be handed over any evidence about it as it is operational in nature and India is planning to raise it in the international fora such as the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), an inter-governmental body whose purpose is the development and promotion of national and international policies to combat money laundering and terror financing, sources said. India has evidence, sources said, not only to prove evidence to prove that fake currency is being pumped at the behest of Pakistanís establishment, especially the ISI, in hundreds of crores of Rupees every year, but also from where they are sourcing paper and ink to match it closely with notes of Rs.500 and Rs.1,000, the press where it is printed and from where the machine was bought and its routes and channels. In 2010 alone, the value the security agencies had recovered fake currency of nearly Rs. 22 crore, which is estimated to be only 10 to 15 percent of the actually amount pumped in India. India will also try to devise a mechanism with Pakistan to prevent accidental crossover of fishermen in each otherís territories, especially near Sir Creek. Hundreds of fishermen who accidentally cross to each otherís territorial waters are often apprehended and serve years in prisons. The Indian team will once again coax the Pak delegation to heed to its request of signing Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty and extradition treaty which Pakistan always puts in the back burner as any such step would make it obligatory to handover international terrorists such as Dawood Ibrahim and Kashmiri militants such as Zyed Sallahuddin who are living in safe havens and hurting India.
