108 foreign terrorists held in Kashmir are in Indian jails

There are 108 foreign militants – 97 Pakistanis, nine Afghans and one each from Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh – lodged in various Indian jails after their arrest in Jammu and Kashmir on terrorism related charges, according to the state’s home department.

Contradictory to separatist leaders’ claims that 6,200 people arrested on militancy related charges are in prisons within and outside Jammu and Kashmir, the government says that a total of 2,384 people are imprisoned in the state for terror charges while 65 are jailed outside the state for similar reasons.
