Four terrorists of the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed have entered Delhi. According to the input received by security agencies, they are planning to strike during the festival seasons. “Airports across north India have been placed on high alert and security has been enhanced,”said officials.
According to the Intelligence sources, a special cell of the Delhi Police received an alert last evening about the presence of the terrorists in the capital. All four are said to be heavily armed.
“We are on alert and taking all anti-terrorism measures. We are working on all inputs. There is nothing to worry,” said MS Randhawa, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Central Delhi).
The country has been on high alert, since the security forces have also received an intel of a terror plan to attack PM Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and NSA Ajit Doval. The home ministry put out an alert to all states following a threat naming 30 major cities.
The Indian Air Force (IAF) is also alert to a threat to frontline bases following multi-agency inputs. The security has been tightened on IAF bases in Srinagar, Awantipora, Jammu, Pathankot, and Hindon.
The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security received a threat letter on September 10. The letter in Hindi is reportedly from one Shamsher Wani of Jaish and claims vengeance for the government’s Article 370 move.
