42 terror training camps in Pakistan
The Multi-Agency Centre (MAC), the nodal agency for all terror-related intelligence under the Indian home ministry, states that there are 42 terror training camps operational in Pakistan and Pakistan occupied Kashmir directed against India
The intelligence is gathered from inputs from Research and Analysis Wing, Intelligence Bureau, Military Intelligence and National Technical Research Organisation and other intelligence agencies.
It is estimated that around 2,200 militants are housed in these camps. After 26/11 Mumbai attack, many of these camps emptied out or relocated for fear of bombing by Indian Air Force. Some are back to their original status now, while new ones have also come up. The Union Home Ministry is closely monitoring the situation.
This is the reason why Prime Minister Manmohan Singh acted tough with Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari in the full glare of television cameras at the BRIC and SCO summit meets.
