Intel input on possible terror attack in Gujarat
AHMEDABAD: An intelligence input sent to Gujarat police about a possible suicide terror attack has put the state on high alert. The alert generated by state intelligence bureau claims that a suicide bomb attack could take place in public places like multiplexes, railway station, religious places and the world’s tallest Statue of Unity, claims the intelligence input. Meanwhile, the Gujarat coast has been put on high alert. The 1,600km-long coastline is the closest to Pakistan waters and has been used by terrorists in 1993 and 2008 to attack Mumbai. A leading daily quoted IGP S S Trivedi as saying that nine coastal states and four Union Territories have been put on alert following the Pulwama attack. “Our 22 marine police stations and 71 coastal checkpoints and outposts are on high alert,” he said. Top Gujarat Police sources claimed they have been informed by the central agencies that the Pulwama suicide bomber Adil Ahmed Dar, 19, had mentioned in the 10-minute video about taking their operations to Delhi and in Gujarat. “Following the input, cops and agencies across the state have been put on high alert and teams have been formed to keep a hawk’s eye on every suspicious movement in Gujarat and adjoining states,” said a top police official. The Pulwama bomb attack in south Kashmir had killed 44 CRPF jawans.
