At least 12 Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists have entered Jammu and Kashmir and could be planning large-scale attacks, a security official said, adding that the forces are on high alert in the state and the national capital Delhi.
The official said the terrorists have reportedly split into groups and, according to the intelligence inputs, could be planning large-scale terror strikes on the 17th day of Ramzan on Saturday and the anniversary of Battle of Badr, the first battle of Islam which took place in March 624 AD.
The security forces have been asked to remain on a high alert and maintain vigil around sensitive security installations across the state and in Delhi, they said.
According to a news agency, terrorists lobbed grenades and fired upon a Bunker vehicle of the 183 CRPF battalion while it was on its way to Idgah in Pulwama. No casualty was reported.
Last year too, the terrorists carried out series of attacks in Kashmir on the Badr anniversary. All the attacks then were claimed by the Jaish terror group.
