India has submitted to the UN’s Sanction Committee a fresh list of 11 terrorists from Pakistan-based terror groups affiliated to Al-Qaeda, Taliban and other outfits responsible for terrorism in the country. External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj while replying to a query in Lok Sabha said the government was making continued efforts to have terror groups and individuals targeting India designated by United Nations Sanction Committees.
The UN Committee covers asset freeze, travel ban, arms embargo and listing criteria for ISIL, Al-Qaida and “associated individuals, groups, undertaking and entities”. It also asks that those responsible for committing, organising or supporting terrorist acts must be held accountable.
