India building contacts with ISIS, al-Qaeda in Afghanistan


ISLAMABAD: The Indian government is now working on building contacts with rogue groups in Afghanistan, including al-Qaeda and ISIS, reports from Afghanistan have revealed.

Earlier, the Indian intelligence had developed close relations with the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and used it to mount attacks on important military installations in the country besides killing civilians. While close ties of Indian intelligence with the TTP still continue, unarguably with the blessings of certain senior operatives of the Afghan intelligence, the Indians are now focusing on ISIS and al-Qaeda operatives to use them against Pakistan.
