Two Pakistan-trained terrorists were arrested on Saturday in Jammu and Kashmir's Baramulla district in a joint operation conducted by state Police, Army and CRPF.

The arrested terrorists had gone to Pakistan on valid Pakistani visa to obtain arms training there for undertaking terrorist activities in the valley.

On questioning, the duo revealed that they had undergone terrorist training in Pakistan along with large number of Pakistani boys.

The police further said that most of boys are from Balochistan and are as young as 10-year-old.

"They had gone to Pakistan on valid Pakistani visa to obtain arms training for undertaking terrorist activities in the valley," said the Baramulla Police.

The arrested terrorists were given Pakistani visas by Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi, claimed the police.

For past couple of years, the police have unearthed several such modules, which lure young boys to Pakistan to get trained and join militancy.

In the recent past, several such young boys have been arrested by the Army and the state police, which has tightened its noose on terrorists in the Valley.
