The terrorist camps in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir have been hit by the coronavirus and some terrorists undergoing training in those camps could die of COVID-19, said J&K Director General of Police Dilbag Singh, citing an intercepted call made by a terrorist to his family in Kashmir.
Mr Singh said there are fears that the desperate terrorists would try to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir and spread the deadly virus in the Valley.
The revelation has come as intelligence agencies, too, say Pakistan is pushing terrorists infected with COVID-19 into Kashmir. “There are reports that somebody from a training camp in Pakistan, where he is being trained, made a call to his family members here (Kashmir), telling them that some of the trainees from Kashmir have been infected by the coronavirus,” the DGP told news agency PTI in an interview.
“He was telling them that some of them would die of the coronavirus in the training camps and nobody bothers about them,” he said.
