Pakistan based terror groups — Lashkar-a-Taiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) are planning to launch Pathankot style attack on India soil and target Indian Naval Base, according to an Intelligence Agency report.
A group of at least 10 terrorists is active and they are waiting at ‘launch pads’ across the Line of Control to infiltrate into the valley.
According to the inputs received by the government, terrorists are waiting near launching pads at Kel, Aathmukam, Dudhnihal and Leepa Valley.
According to the Intelligence report, ISI is pressuring LeT and JeM to attack Indian security forces, and Jaish terrorists are being trained to attack Indian Naval Base in Pakistan’s Bahawalpur.
Jaish terrorists are being trained about launching underwater attack and deep sea techniques to attack Navy.
The security forces across the border has been stepped up following the Intelligence agency report.
Terror threat also looms largely on Amarnath Yatra and security for this year’s pilgrimage has already been heightened to thwart any rerun of last year’s militant attack that left eight pilgrims dead and several injured.
CRPF, Indian Army, and Jammu and Kashmir Police have also been asked to maintain strict vigil.
Last month, a plan hatched by the Islamic State to carry out terror strikes in New Delhi was thwarted by the security agencies after infiltrating into a module of the dreaded terror group, officials said today. The IS terror plot was foiled following the arrest of an Afghan suicide bomber, who had been under the surveillance of security agencies for long, in late 2017.
