Srinagar, December 12: Differences have cropped up in the militant groups operating in Kashmir with Hizbul Mujahideen accusing Pakistan-based militant groups of having some "terrorist elements" in their rank and file and warning of retaliation if suitable action was not taken against them by their respective heads.

Hizbul Mujahideen divisional commander for north Kashmir Rabu Ubaidah in a statement to a local news agency, has said some "exploiters with terrorist designs" were active in the ranks of Lashker-e-Toiba, Jaish-e-Muhammad, Harkat-e-Jihad-i-Islami, Harkat-ul-Mujahideen and Al-Badar, all foreign militant groups.

Hizbul Mujahideen is a dominant militant outfit in Kashmir. "These elements are involved in the killing of two Hizbul Mujahideen activists and two girls," the Hizbul commander alleged and accused them of being involved in several "anti-people activities". The Hizbul Mujahideen commander even identified these "exploiters" as Hatif and Bilali of Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, Sajad and Saidullah of Harkat-e-Jehad-i-Islami, and Jibran and Khalid of Lashkar-e-Toiba.

Abu Ubaidah also appealed the heads of foreign militant outfits, active in Kashmir, to correct their rank and file. "If they fail to do so, Hizbul Mujahideen has a capacity and strength to give a befitting answer", he warned.

The Hizbul Mujahideen commander also accused these elements of "torturing" a prominent commander of Hizbul Mujahideen, Muhammad Sidiq Bhat alias Yunis, a resident of Kandi Khas in frontier district of Kupwara and later beheading him.

He further said these elements are also involved in the killing of one of the released militants of Hizbul Mujahideen, Mushtaq Ahmed of Devas-Magam and two girls of Sadhu Ganga Kandi Kupwara.

"These elements are writing threatening letters to Hizbul Mujahideen activists", the commander said. He claimed that his organisation is in possession of solid proofs to establish these charges.
