Special training camps have been set up in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir to train militants to cut three-tier fencing and use plastic ladders to cross over into Jammu and Kashmir along the India-Pakistan border, a surrendered Harkat-ul-Jehad Islami militant said in Jammu on Thursday.

"In Pakistani training camps, special training is given to militants," HUJI militant Mohmmad Amin Choppan told reporters Jammu.

Amin, who surrendered before troops in Banihal area of Doda district on August 27, said the camps have models of India-Pakistan border fencing to teach militants how to cross it.

"It is taught how to cut border fence and use of the plastic ladders," he added. Amin, who got arms and moulvi trainings during his seven-year stay in Pakistan, returned to Jammu and Kashmir on a Pakistani passport via Nepal in July 2005.

Amin said, "I am fed up of Pakistan's game plan to induct Kashmiris in militancy and keep the pot of militancy boiling".

The three-tier border fencing along 740 kilometres of the border has proved to be a death trap for militants. So far, over 350 ultras have been killed after the installation of border fencing.
