Kashmir, Delhi on high alert after infiltration of 20 terrorists

5 terrorists shot dead

Srinagar: At least 20 terrorists including 12 from Jaish-e-Mohammad terror outfit have entered Jammu-Kashmir from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir to carry out large-scale attacks in the valley and may also sneak into Delhi.

A circular issued by the security agencies has asked the security forces in Jammu-Kashmir and Delhi to be on alert.

According to intelligence reports, the terrorists have divided themselves into sub-groups and are planning to carry out a large-scale attack on Saturday—the 17th day of Ramzan and the anniversary of the Battle of Badr (the first battle of Islam, which took place in March 624 AD).

Security forces have been asked to remain on high alert and enhance the security around sensitive installations across the state and in Delhi, officials said.

Recently, terrorists had attacked the vehicles of security forces in Pulwama district of southern Kashmir. The security personnel had recovered three bags containing improvised explosive device (IED) from the area.

Terrorists had carried out a series of attacks in Kashmir valley during this period last year.
