On Wednesday, Punjab police issued an alert saying that three Pakistani terrorists could be planning an attack in Delhi, Mumbai and Goa.
A grey Swift Dzire with license plate JK-01 AB-2654 which is expected to pass through the Banihal Tunnel in Jammu and Kashmir later on Wednesday, packed with explosives, is carrying three Pakistani terrorists and ‘a local’, reported NDTV.
"You are directed to take all the necessary steps in this regard and specially focus on strict checking of vehicles, security of all vital installation including police buildings and defence establishments, religious places, crowded places such as market areas, malls, railway stations, railway tracks, and educational institutions,” an alert issued by the police said.
According to International Business Times, Punjab has witnessed two terror attacks in recent months. The Pathankot airbase attack happened in January and the attack on Gurdaspur police station happened in July last year.
Seven security personnel and four attackers were killed in the Pathankot attacks and the Pakistani Joint Investigative Team (JIT), who probed the attack, claimed that the Indian authorities had staged the attack to malign Pakistan.
According to the report by NDTV, last month, Pakistani National Security Advisor Naseer Khan Janjua warned India that 10 terrorists had crossed the border into India and planned to attack on the festival of Maha Shivratri. The Home Ministry claimed that the terrorists were neutralised but no evidence or details were ever provided.
