Security forces in Delhi are on high alert after a warning by intelligence agencies of a “fidayeen attack” around Independence Day, a media report said today.
Central intelligence agencies have shared specific inputs with security forces that Mohammed Ibrahim, a former bodyguard of Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Maulana Masood Azhar’s brother Abdul Rauf Asghar, is in Delhi to organise the attack, the Times of India reported.
Besides Ibrahim alias Ismael, intel agencies also have info on other JeM cadre.
The entire operation is being supervised by Asghar, Masood Azhar’s deputy in JeM and operational commander for anti-India operations. They are being provided support by Pakistan’s spy agency ISI.
According to intelligence sources, Asghar successfully planned attack on Pathankot Air Force base in 2016 and the 1999 IC-814 hijacking to free Masood Azhar.
The warning comes amid another intelligence report that Pakistan Army is readying a plan to push nearly 600 terrorists into Indian territory to wreak havoc in Jammu and Kashmir. According to the report, accessed by Zee News, 600 terrorists, positioned at various terror launch pads spread along the Line of Control (LoC) and International Border, are waiting to infiltrate.
The report submitted to the Union Home Ministry asserts that these terrorists are being actively supported by Pakistani armed forces. Intelligence sources suspect that there are also Pakistan army personnel among the 600 terrorists.
