Terror alert sounded in Punjab border regions
Twin border towns of Pathankot and Gurdaspur in Punjab have been put on high alert after intelligence inputs said some Pakistan-trained militants have infiltrated into Punjab to create terror.

The alert issued by the intelligence bureau and other agencies is based on human intelligence gathered from the ground from time to time. This is the second terror alert issued by security agencies in the last one month.

This border zone in Punjab has suffered two terror strikes from Pakistan militia. The Army has been alerted of the developments. Police and security agencies are keeping a close watch on the movement in the area.

Security around the frontier airbase of the Air Force in Pathankot, that withstood terror attack from Pak-militants, as well as the Army cantonment, has been stepped up. The BSF manning the 542-km of the Punjab-Pakistan border has deployed additional armed personnel to thwart any misadventure. The infiltration was made through the Bamial sector in Pathankot. Bulletproof tractors too have been strategically deployed near the border.
