Punjab on high alert

Punjab was on Tuesday put on high alert following an input by central intelligence agencies that terrorists in three vehicles may enter the state from Jammu and Kashmir before sneaking into Delhi.

“An input has been received which says that more than three terrorists in three different vehicles carrying ammunition are travelling from J&K to go towards Delhi via Punjab,” a Punjab police official said.

After receiving the alert, the police have tightened security across the state. The police have been asked to strictly check vehicles, enhance security of vital installations including police and defence establishments, religious places, markets, malls, railway stations and tracks, and educational institutions, the official said.

A senior official of the Punjab police in Pathankot said, security has been tightened and vehicles are being checked thoroughly. In January this year, terrorists had attacked an air force base in Pathankot, killing seven military personnel.
