At that time no action could be initiated as she was a minor. The agencies counselled her and let her off. However, now it is suspected that she remained in touch with the radical elements.

The latest intelligence on her suggests that she managed to enter into the Kashmir valley and is attempting to carry out a fidayeen strike on Republic Day.

The information comes in the wake of an already heightened sense of alert across the country ahead of Republic Day. The agencies are now coordinating to hunt down the lady who goes by the name Saida.

A high alert has already been sounded in Jammu and Kashmir ahead of Republic Day. There are inputs suggesting that groups such as the Jaish-e-Mohammad or Lashkar-e-Tayiba would try and launch a major attack. All security installations have been placed on high alert and security enhanced.
