Six Jaish terrorists in Punjab, heading towards Delhi: Counter Intelligence warns

November 15, 2018

Punjab was put on high alert following an alert issued by Counter Intelligence wing of State police which said “a group of six to seven Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists are reportedly in Punjab, possibly in Ferozepur area and are planning to move towards Delhi from Punjab side”. The alert, based on “an input”, was issued on Wednesday, along with a photographs showing suspected terrorists.

A senior officer of Punjab police said field officers across the state had been directed to step up vigil. “The officers have been particularly told to ensure strict vehicular checking. Ten companies of state police are away for election duty in other states and we have pressed remaining force at our disposal following the alert,” said the officer.

If the Innova was shown the photographs circulated by counter intelligence wing and he told that “none of the persons matched with the carjackers”.

“They asked the driver to get into the Innova when they carjacked it, telling him that if he did not, they will shoot him. But, the driver did not see any weapon in their hands. Then, they tried to bundle the driver into the Innova, but failed to do so. As they were fleeing, the driver asked them to at least give him his blanket and bag of clothes. On this, they threw his blanket and bag. All these pointers do not suggest it to be a terror act,” said the officer.

Pathankot SSP Vivek Sheel Soni said, “We have got leads (about carjacking case). We are working on them.”

The counter intelligence alert on JeM terrorists, meanwhile, said, “In view of the above input, inter alia, there is a need to mount immediate/strong nakas at all important points and routes, conduct strict vehicular checking and take suitable counter measures for all sensitive locations in your area. Forces be suitably sensitized and alerted in this regard,” said the alert, which was based on “an input”. It added, “Further, there is a need to review and strengthen second line of defence along the Indo-Pak border and to coordinate closely with BSF and other police/defence establishments in your areas.”

The alert, issued by Counter Intelligence wing Inspector General further read, “All supervisory field officers, including IGP/DIG Ranges and CPs (Commissioners of Police) are advised involve themselves personally in the planning and implementation of preventive, precautionary measures as mentioned above in their respective jurisdictions to avoid any untoward incident.”

It added, “All officers are advised not to disclose the details of the input or the counter measures being taken in the public domain and discuss/share them strictly only on a need-to-know basis. All concerned may also be suitably advised in this regard.”
