Indian intelligence and security agencies have reported that a series of meetings have taken place since August 2019 between the Pakistan Army and senior members of banned terrorist organisations, reported Hindustan Times.

Terrorist organisations in question include LeT, JeM, Hizbul Mujahideen (HM), the Taliban, and Jaish commander Mufti Mohammed Asghar Khan Kashmiri. The meetings are focused on coordinating joint terror operations in Jammu and Kashmir.

A review by Hindustan Times revealed that Pakistan-based terror groups are receiving active support from the country's spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

“The outcome of such a synergy has usually been to launch coordinated terror attacks in the wake of constitutional changes pushed through by the Centre”, said inputs from intelligence agencies as reported by HT.

According to the intelligence agency's inputs, the first key meeting took place on December 27, 2019, between Amir Hamza, general secretary of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa, the parent of LeT, met with senior functionaries of the JeM at Markaz Subhan Allah, Bahawalpur. The goal was to form a joint strategy to share resources and intensify operations against India.
