Pak's strategy in Afghanistan: Indian intelligence heads meets today
New Delhi: Crucial intelligence agencies conduct meeting to discuss implications of the Taliban’s rule in Afghanistan and Pakistan’s role in Taliban rule which works against the interest of India.
Delhi Police is hosting the meeting; intelligence agencies will discuss the threat of terrorist activities following the Taliban takes over of Afghanistan. The main concern of security agencies are Pakistan would use Afghanistan soil to shelter, train and finance terror outfits, Lashkar –e- Tabiba and Jaish-e- Mohammed to carry terror activities against India.
The main purpose of the meeting is to exchange intelligence inputs and better coordination among intelligence agencies.
After the exit of US-led forces from Afghanistan, the threats have become common from these two regions. Threat assessment will also be discussed in the meeting. Friendly nations will discuss sharing the intelligence inputs to prevent terror threats.
The anti-terror agency heads from Jammu Kashmir, Mumbai, Kerala, Telangana, Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand will attend the meeting. Officers from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW), and the NIA will also participate.
It was the first time Delhi Police’s Special Cell is hosting the meeting; earlier such a meeting was hosted by National Investigating Agency (NIA).
