NEW DELHI: The national capital is on the high-alert with intelligence agencies warning of the possibility of a suicide attack planned along the lines of attempted ambush on an army camp in Samba in Jammu and Kashmir by the Jaish-e-Mohammed, based in Pakistan last month.
Dressed in army uniforms, both terrorists were killed after a six-hour shootout.
A note kept near one of them read, “We salute the martyrs who gave their lives for this attack. Next meeting in Delhi.” The intelligence agencies are focusing on the origins of the note.
Such threats have been received in the past and the intelligence agencies sensitize the concerned police authorities as a precautionary measure.
According to the intelligence agencies, the Samba attack and another a day earlier on a police station in the Jammu region suggest that a number of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) members have crossed the border line and have arrived into the Indian region in the last few days.
After receiving the advisory from the intelligence agencies, additional security has been put up at the government buildings and famous Delhi places by the police.
The attack on the Army camp took place in Samba near Jammu, just 20 kms from the border with Pakistan in late March.
A day before that attack, two other operatives of JeM had stormed a police station in Kathua district of Jammu, killing three security personnel and two civilians and injuring 11 others.
The terrorists were also killed in that exchange of fire.
