    According to News 18, Hussain confessed his long association with terrorism.
    "I was betrayed (by accompanying terrorists) and captured by the Indian Army. I underwent six-month training and visited several (terrorist) camps (run by the Pakistan army) for Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) members," he said. He had earlier come to India in 2016, he said, adding that "the others ran away".
    Brigadier Rajeev Nair, the commandant of the military hospital in Rajouri, said Hussain’s condition was stable. Army doctor Rajeev Nair said: "Such is the valour of Indian soldiers that they donated blood to save him." He said Hussain was bed-ridden and being fed by Indian soldiers.
    Meanwhile, the Army said Pakistan's "sinister attempt" to disturb peace in the Jammu region was scuttled. In an official statement, Defence authorities said that in the last 48 hours, two major infiltration bids had been eliminated by alert troops deployed along the LoC in the Naushera Sector of Rajouri district.
    "The terrorist tried to flee. However, he was brought down. Two terrorists who were hiding behind, fled the area by taking cover in dense jungle. The injured Pakistani terrorist was captured alive and provided with immediate medical aid, and lifesaving surgery was carried out," the statement said.
