By Super Admin

Amritsar, Mar. 4 (ANI): Following the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan Cricket team in Lahore, a high alert has been sounded along the Indo-Pakistan border in Punjab.

"That BSF (Border Security Force) is alert all along the border and the necessary measures are in place and some additional measures have been taken in view of the attacks," said Mohammed Aqil, BSF's Deputy Inspector General of Amritsar sector.

All border outposts along the international border in Punjab and particularly those in the Attari sub sector of Amritsar, have been put on high alert.

The BSF said the security at the Attari-Wagah joint road check post, which is just 19 kilometers from Lahore, has also been increased.

On Tuesday, around a dozen heavily armed assailants attacked the Sri Lankan cricket team's bus and a police escort at Liberty Chowk near Gaddafi stadium in Lahore. At least six cricketers were wounded, while six policemen and a driver were killed in the ambush. (ANI)
