A high alert was sounded in the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir after intelligence inputs that Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), militants may try to carry out attacks on security installations in coming four days.
According to a police sources, the alert was sounded because of the inputs received from intelligence agencies about possibility of any attack by militants in Srinagar city.
“We have sounded a normal alert after the attack in Pulwama. It is natural that we have to alert everyone. We have alerted every installation and establishment,” Inspector General of Police, Kashmir Range, Munir Ahmad Khan told ‘Kashmir Vision’.
Sources said that police today sanitized the major security installations in the city. Trees were trimmed and barbed wire installed near various locations in the city.
Police have also asked the shopkeepers near the security establishments not to put any material outside their shops.
“We have an intelligence report about the group of Jaish militants who attacked the DPL in Pulwama that they have other partners in the city. So naturally one has to be alert,” Khan added.
The warning comes two days after Jaish militants carried a deadly attack in the District Police Lines of Pulwama in which eight security personnel were killed and three Jaish militants were also gunned down.
According to the reports, the Jaish militants had written a graffiti in DPL Pulwama stating that the attack was the revenge for Afzal Guru’s hanging. The police said that they are investigating the graffiti.
According to the police sources, a group of heavily armed militants have recently entered the Line of Control and are planning to attack the security establishments in Srinagar.
