A high alert has been put off in Jammu and Kashmir after Pakistan reportedly shared with Intel inputs on the possible terror attack in Awantipora and Pulwama district.
Pakistan’s Intel warnings which were shared before the SCO summit in Bishkek have also been shared with the United States.
The state police are keeping a tight vigil on the highway in particular as the input warns against a possible terror attack by the militants using an improvised explosives device (IED) mounted on a vehicle in Awantipora town of Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir.
According to sources, the input on the possible terror attack in Pulwama was generic in nature and no specifics have been shared by Pakistan. Sources further informed that Pakistan said that they have informed about the terror attack to avoid any sort of blame, retaliation by India or international pressure on acting against terror.
The terror attack by Pakistan has been plannd to avenge the killing of Zakir Musa who was killed in an encounter with security forces in Tral in Pulwama on May 24. Musa was the close associate of Burhan Wani who was the commander of Al Qaeda linked Ansar Ghazwat-ul Hind.
Talking about the possible terror attack in Pulwama, the official said that Pakistan has shared the input with the Indian High Commission in Islamabad. The same input was shared with the United States.
