China, while the issue of terrorism is often on the agenda of Pakistan, is trying to help its evergreen friend to increase terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir. ISI-backed terrorist organizations are supplying arms to Jammu and Kashmir through Chinese helicopters used in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPC). The rifles that these drones and hexacopters are entering the Indian border with are also made in the Chinese state-owned weapons company Norinko.
According to a report in the Sunday Guardian, the Chinese government handed over the helicopters and T-977 rifles to the Pakistan Frontier Force on the pretext of defending the CPEC. Indian intelligence agencies believe that China has been assisting Pakistan for the past one year due to the rapid decline in terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir and wants to bring more weapons to the terrorists.
The ISI used these helicopters and drones, realizing that the Indian security forces were guided by the policy that infiltrators should not be fired without weapons. So the ISI created a way to send terrorists and weapons across the border to reduce the risk of terrorists being killed in the LOC.
Since January, security forces have recovered Chinese weapons in at least 15 cases that were seized from individuals or the LOC. There were only six such cases in September. On the night of September 2020, security forces arrested two persons on their way from Jammu to South Kashmir. A Chinese-made T7N NSR rifle, four magazines with 19 rounds, an AK-47 rifle, four magazines with 218 rounds and three grenades were recovered from his possession. During interrogation, it was seen that these weap ons were dropped from the Samba drone.
“The engagement of Pakistan and China to bring weapons to terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir is becoming clearer with each passing day,” said a senior police official. We have a lot of evidence that Chinese products are being used to spread terrorism in India. ”
On 23 September, five AK-47 rifles and two pistols were recovered in Mamdot sector of Ferozepur. On 22 September, two AK-47 rifles, a pistol, three AK magazines and 90 rounds of ammunition were fired by a Pakistani drone at Akhnoor, Jammu, which was seized by the Jammu and Kashmir police. Similarly, on 18 September, two rifles, two pistols and four grenades were seized along the LoC in Rajouri sector, which was dropped by Pakistan with a drone.
On September 14, security forces recovered two Chinese-made QuibZ95 rifles in the Gurez sector of north Kashmir after being challenged by infiltrating militants. The terrorists threw weapons before jumping into the Kishanganga river. The bodies of two militants were later recovered. Earlier on September 12, an AK-47 rifle, a 16 rifle and two pistols were seized at Ferozepur Stadium and on September 8, an AK-47, an M-4 rifle, two magazines and six pistols were seized at the international border.
