New Delhi [India], Jan. 6 (ANI): With the National Investigation Agency (NIA) filing a chargesheet against Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist Bahadur Ali, Minister of State in Prime Minister office Jitendra Singh on Friday said that this is yet another opportunity for the entire world to waken up to the kind of terrorism which originates from Pakistani soil.

Singh told ANI that Pakistan is virtually becoming the epicentre of terrorism in this part of Asia and particularly the Indian subcontinent.

Questioning Pakistan's denial, Singh said, "the more Pakistan continues to remain in denial mode the more they are placing itself at risk. But at the same time I would like to say that this is yet another opportunity for the entire world to waken up to the kind of terrorism which is originating from Pakistani soil and Pakistan is virtually becoming the epicentre of terrorism in this part of Asia particularly the Indian subcontinent."

Singh further added that there has been evidence from time to time against Pakistan that they have been perpetuating, promoting and sponsoring terrorism against India and particularly in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

"And this is yet another addition to the long sequence of evidences. If Pakistan continues to be in denial mode on such evidences, then ultimately it will harm them," he added.

The NIA today filed a charge sheet against alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Bahadur Ali for conspiring to carry out terror attacks in the national capital Delhi and prominent cities of Jammu and Kashmir including border districts Poonch and Udhampur.

The 21-year-old Ali, has also been accused of stone pelting and tailoring unrest in the Valley in the aftermath of Burhan Wani's death.

The agency has filed the charge sheet under various provisions of IPC, UAPA, sections of Explosives Act, Explosive Substances Act, Arms Act, Foreigners Act and the Indian Wireless Telegraphy Act against Ali, who has been been in judicial custody since August. (ANI)
