The Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency has allegedly sent its agents to the India-Pakistan Champions Trophy match being held on Sunday (June 4) to draw the world's attention to the Kashmir issue.
According to India Today, the ISI had planned to send 14 operatives to the India-Pakistan match to display banners related to Kashmir. The agents had been asked to carry A3 placards pro-Kashmir freedom messages during the Champions Trophy clash in Edgbaston, England.
The placards are supposed to carry slogans like'Kashmir is bleeding', 'We stand with Kashmir', and 'Free the state of Jammu and Kashmir now'. The idea was to stage the issue on an international platform.
The sources also added that the Indian intelligence agencies are aware of the ISI's plans.
Meanwhile, tensions between the two countries are rising with Pakistan engaging in ceasefire violations along the LoC on a regular basis. On Saturday, the Indian Army denied any casualties in ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops. The PakiArmy army had claimed that it had killed five Indian soldiers and destroyed bunkers in the firing.
