Security agencies have killed three out of 10 suspected Pakistani terrorists who had entered India via Gujarat to carry out terror attacks during Maha Shivaratri festivities, a report said on Tuesday.
Officials tracked down all the 10 suspected Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists. While three terrorists have been neutralised, a massive search operation is on to hunt down the rest, as per CNN IBN.
Important monuments and pilgrimage centers like Somanth temple, Dwarka Temple, Akashardham Temple, power plants, dams like Sardar Sarovar Dam and security establishments were put on high alert after intelligence inputs reported the entry of the said terrorists.
In view of the inputs, Gujarat and the national capital were put on high alert and security was increased at vital installations, important buildings and crowded places at both the cities.
While a red alert was issued across Gujarat, Delhi Police had heightened its vigil near iconic buildings, military installations, prominent malls, hospitals, schools and colleges in the city.
Notably, the terror alerts were issued across the country after Pakistan’s National Security Advisor provided intelligence inputs on a possible 26/11-style fidayeen assault in India.
