ISIS may join hands with LeT: Army commander


An Army commander warned India about the suspects of joining hands of global extremist group ISIS with Pakistani based terror organisation LeT to launch attack on the nation.

“Yes, that (IS joining hands with LeT to launch attacks in India) can be a possibility as the motive of the terrorists is to spread their propaganda,” General Officer Commanding of the 16 corps of the army Lt Gen RR Nimbhorkar said on Thursday.

“They want their name and for that, they can do anything. And if they get successful, they can take advantage of it by using any name. Yes it is a possibility,” Nimbhorkar.

Replying on the question about the possible threat of terror to the people of the country, the commander said that the need of the hour was to remain alert and be ready to face any eventuality.

“Right now, we have to do detailed analysis but at the end it is our job that we have to be ready all the time. We have to remain alert,” the army officer said.

He also added that Whatever the name be, be it the ISIS, the LeT, Hizb-ul-Mujahideen etc if they attack the final result would be the same. We have to guard against that final result and I want to assure you that we are always ready.
