Security at all time high as Lashkar, JeM look to strike at heartland
New Delhi, Aug 12: The Indian Army and Navy continues to remain on a state of high alert ahead of Independence Day.
All steps have been taken to ensure that there is no let up in security even as Intelligence reports speak about a looming threat by Pakistan based terrorist organisations.
The Indian Navy is on high alert after the intelligence signalled the possibility of a terror strike. The surveillance through radars have been stationed at crucial points keep a watch on any activity, officials have said.
Intelligence Bureau officials have also advised the police of several states to keep a very close watch on sleeper cells and terror modules of groups such as the Jaish-e-Mohammad, Lashkar-e-Tayiba, Students Islamic Movement of India, Islamic State and the Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, Bangladesh.
There has been plenty of chatter in the past couple of days and these groups are trying to activate their modules with an intention of striking. Groups from Pakistan will look to strike in the cities in a bid to avenge the decision on Article 370, an Intelligence Bureau official tells OneIndia.
They would look to strike at cities such as New Delhi, Mumbai or Bengaluru, the Intelligence Bureau also warns. There are several modules of these terror outfits in and around these cities. Recent investigation by the National Investigation Agency have been a testimony of this fact and it has come to light how modules of the Islamic State have mushroomed in Mumbai and several other South Indian states.
