Delhi on high alert as 9 Pakistani terrorists sneak in ahead of Independence Day: Report


Security forces in New Delhi are in a state of high alert after intelligence input that at least nine terrorists from Pakistan have sneaked into the capital ahead of Independence Day celebrations.

The input has been generated in the wake of the Gurdaspur terror attacks on a police station last month, in which 13 people were killed.

A cache of arms had already reached the national capital three months ago and the same were meant to be used in possible terror attacks, a major national tabloid reported.

“The routine Saturday meeting at the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), where all the arms of Indian intelligence are present to share intelligence inputs with one another, had thrown up this input. It has since been circulated to all of us with the direction to maintain top-notch vigil and remain at the highest level of preparedness to avert any terror attack. So we have beefed up security at all the establishments that are under our watch,” the CISF sources said.

With August 15 fast approaching, the security forces are taking all inputs at face value.

“Whenever we receive such inputs, we always put these through our system of verification by way of which we decide the preciseness of information and the immediacy of the threat. We always cross-check how specific such inputs are. However, on occasions of national importance like August 15 and January 26, we do not take any chances. So we take all such inputs at face value and circulate these among all arms of the security apparatus,” the intelligence officer explained.

It is also being believed that the possible terror attack in Delhi could be the extension of the recent Gurdaspur terror attack, where the three terrorists killed could be part of the group of nine that have entered India illegally.


  1. Who bothers for Pakistani terrorists? We are getting warnings from 2008 Read======
    Email warns of more strikes

    “Chetawani nahin, haqiqat (Not (just) a warning, but reality) —
    this was the title of the two-page terror e-mail that has been sent to the
    media by a group calling itself Deccan Mujahideen. The e-mail was sent a few
    hours after the terror attacks began in Mumbai on Wednesday night.
    The e-mail, of which Hindustan Times has a copy, has
    been composed in flawed Hindi (liberally interspersed with chaste Urdu and
    Punjabi words) and makes disparaging remarks on India, and Hindus in
    Flaunting a rhetorical flourish, the e-mail warns of continuous
    terror attacks till “we do not show the Hindus their (actual) auqaat (status)…
    Till Muslims in India do not get to live according to Quran Hadith (Quran’s
    principles) on a free Islamic state… Till we do not avenge each atrocity
    (perpetrated on Muslims) and each drop (of blood shed by Muslims)”.
    Intelligence Bureau officials said the name of the group seemed
    “fake”, though they were taking its content “seriously”.
    “We suspect with the kind of Hindi they have used, and the
    mindset of the e-mail, that it shows a Pakistani, Punjabi or Pashtu, linkage.
    But we are inspecting if the language is akin to the kind spoken in Kashmir.”
    Issuing a dire warning to the “Indian government”, the terror
    document read: “We today warn the Indian government that it should end its
    series of atrocities on Muslims, it should return to them their states… We know
    Hindus belong to the race of baniya (shopkeepers) who
    only take (what is owed to them), but never give back.”
    “But the Hindu baniya should know that we are a qaum (community)
    that never forgets its history and in fact repeats its history.”
    It warns India against ignoring its warnings, saying “our
    warnings prove correct, you have seen a live example in Mumbai”.
    The e-mail also swears of incessant terror attacks in the name
    of a few of its role models, who do not seem to be Indians — like “Ummer Farokh
    Raji,” “Abu Baqar Siddiq Raji,” “Usman Raji,” and “Khalid Bin Walid Raji.”
