Guwahati: Terming Pakistan-based terror groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad a constant security threat, director of Intelligence Bureau Asif Ibrahim on Saturday said return of the battle-hardened youth from Iraq and Syria poses a new challenge to the country.

"Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad remain a constant threat to our national security," he said addressing the 49th annual conference of DGPs, IGPs of all states, Union Territories and central police organizations heads here organised by the Intelligence Bureau.

Referring to the terrorist violence in Iraq and Syria, Ibrahim said the two countries have emerged as new theatres of 'jihadi' violence.

"The return of the battle-hardened youth from these regions into India poses a fresh challenge," he said.

A youth from Mumbai's suburb Kalyan, Arif Majeed, who was believed to have been killed while fighting for militant group ISIS in Syria, returned to the metropolis on Friday and was arrested after joint interrogation by NIA and Maharashtra ATS.
