Battle of Badr: Terrorists plan big attack on Saturday warns IB
A high alert has been declared following an intelligence input that suggests that a major attack is likely to be carried out in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir. The alert speaks about the sneaking in of 12 terrorists of the Jaish-e-Mohammad.
The IB alert notes that they could be planning a major attack in the next three to four days. The security forces have been asked to maintain a high state of alert. The alert has also been sounded off along the border.
The IB alert says that the attack could be staged on Saturday, the 17th day of Ramazan. It also is the anniversary of the first battle of Islam known as Battle of Badr. The alert reminds the forces that a series of attacks had been carried out last year on the same day.
Earlier terrorists lobbed grenades and fired upon a Bunker vehicle of the 183 CRPF battalion while it was on its way to Idgah in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir.
On Wednesday, a group of unidentified terrorists hurled grenade on a joint checkpoint of CRPF and the Jammu and Kashmir Police in the Pulwama district of South Kashmir. The grenade, however, missed its target and fell in a nearby orchard and exploded. No one was hurt in the incident.
The Indian government had declared a unilateral ceasefire due to the holy month of Ramazan. The Indian and Pakistan forces also decided to call for a ceasefire as per the 2003 agreement. However there is no commitment from Pakistan on infiltration of terrorists from its soil.
