Jammu- In a startling claim, the Border Security Force (BSF) has claimed that the Chinese troops are training the Pakistani forces in Azad Kashmir, and has issued a report to National Security Advisor Ajit Doval.

The report states the Chinese troops are imparting weapon training to their Pakistani counterparts near Rajouri in Jammu & Kashmir, and that the former were seen in Pakistani forward posts in the area of 3rd and 4th AJK brigades, according to Press Trust of India.

"Chinese troops are seen in some of the Pakistan forward posts in the general area of 3rd and 4th AJK brigades, opposite Rajouri sector. Reportedly, they are imparting weapon handling training to Pakistani Army troops but the description of weapon could not be ascertained," the BSF reports says.

The BSF has also claimed that the Pakistan Army is taking over from the Pakistani Rangers at several key posts along the International Border.

The Pakistan army's mortar platoon has been deployed adjoining the Srinagar sector, while a Pakistan infantry division is reportedly carrying out a military exercise near Kandera opposite Jaisalmer sector.

At a time when the state of Jammu and Kashmir is set for polls, the BSF intelligence is said to have intercepted phone communications that suggest that the Pakistani Army and Rangers are planning to deploy snipers and sharpshooters to target Indian soldiers along the border.

The BSF report alleged that a special squad of Pakistani Army commandos has been placed at select locations along the IB and LoC, which is planning to carry out raids and Border Action Team (BAT)-sponsored attacks into the Indian territory.
