The security apparatus across the state was put on high alert on Wednesday evening after intelligence agencies warned that Pakistan’s ISI has sent some operatives to plan and execute a major attack on Dwarka temple. Over the last few hours, security in the coastal towns of Dwarka and Mandal has been heightened.
The input by the Central Intelligence (CI) cell to Gujarat DGP states, “Around 12 to 15 ISI operatives have either landed or may land on the Gujarat coast. They may also be in a hideout in Dwarka or Mandal.”
On Saturday last week, Gujarat ATS had arrested Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) operative Hasan Imamuddin, 44, from Aurangabad in Bihar. He was allegedly involved in the terror attack on the American Cultural Centre in Kolkata in January 2002. Gujarat ATS officials are trying to ascertain through Hasan’s interrogation if there are any sleeper cells within Gujarat or anywhere in neighbouring states.
