Government forces are put on high alert after pakistan is said to have shared information regarding the threat of a possible attack in Pulwama district, probably near Awantipora, Indian Express reported.
Quoting a top security official in Srinagar, the newspaper reported that at the SCO Summit in Bishkek, which Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan also attended, Prime Minister Narendra Modi told Chinese President Xi Jinping that Pakistan needs to create an atmosphere “free of terrorism”, but at this stage, New Delhi has not seen that from Islamabad. The PM also said he has made efforts to initiate peace with Pakistan, but his efforts have been “derailed”.
“The entire security grid in J&K is on its toes after the alert, which came just days ago, regarding a possible attack by militants using an improvised explosive device mounted on a vehicle,” it reported.
The newspaper reported that the attack, the Pakistanis say, is being ostensibly planned to avenge the killing of Zakir Musa.
“The Pakistanis shared this information regarding the possibility of such an attack with our High Commission in Islamabad. They had also shared this information with the Americans, who too, informed us. So this information has come directly as well as via the Americans to us,” the official said.
