A desperate Pakistan may strike at Indian cities, Intelligence Bureau warns
New Delhi, Sept 29: Isolating Pakistan is bound to make them desperate and the country is likely to sponsor a series of attacks on India, intelligence bureau officials have warned. While there is already heightened alert along the border areas, officials warn that Pakistan may try and engineer a strike in a major city as well.
The Intelligence Bureau has directed police officials of major cities to remain on alert as some Paksitan sponsored elements may try and strike. The alert warns against strikes by Paksitan on strategic locations and also crowded areas.
Only recently the IB had warned that some elements of the ISIS-JMB combine may orchestrate a knife attack in major cities in the country.
Officials say that Paksitan will try doing what it does best and that is to carry out a terrorist attack.
Intelligence Bureau officials point out that along the border it is the army camps and checkposts which would be on the radar of the terrorists. However, in the cities, crowded areas and major locations are likely under the radar.
The alert states that the sleeper cells of outfits which subscribe to Pakistan based terror groups should be watched. Fringe elements also could be activated to carry out a strike, intelligence bureau officials also warn.
Home Minstry officials say that a desperate Paksitan will look to hit back and hence security must be tight. Police officials must check all elements including those belonging to fringe groups in order to ensure that nothing untoward takes place, the officer also informed.
