Delhi warned of fidayeen attacks this week: Intelligence Bureau

 Barely days after Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba militants carried out a fidayeen (suicide) attack on a Central Reserve Police Force camp at Jammu and Kashmir, the Intelligence Bureau (IB) warned the government of possible fidayeen attacks on the national capital this week.

“The militants may attack the capital this week. We have got intelligence input about their plan and accordingly have alerted the government,” said a source in IB, adding the report suggests that the militants may target vital installations.

The intelligence report on threat perception was given to the Delhi Police on Saturday.


Senior police officials, however, refused to comment on the alert. “There is no threat of a fidayeen attack, nothing to worry about. Delhi being the capital, it is always a target of terror organisations, which are out to gain maximum publicity for their nefarious acts,” said a police officer.

However, the security parameters in the city are under intense checking.
