The security agencies of the country have issued an alert regarding terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir due to cross-border nexus and nefarious conspiracies. A senior official said the inputs have been shared with state intelligence and security agencies, so that preparations can be made to thwart these attacks.

All intelligence agencies have been put on high alert after receiving information about a meeting between Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar and Taliban leaders in Kandahar, Afghanistan, in the third week of August, the official said. It is being told that in this meeting, Jaish sought help from Taliban leaders in carrying out attacks in India. Sources said that the political situation in Pakistan was also discussed in this meeting.

“We have asked intelligence agencies to keep a watch on social media. On 24th August we got information about the movement of two Pakistani terrorists who want to carry out grenade attack in Srinagar. All agencies have been alerted for coordination.” All states have been asked to increase security and counter-terror units to remain on high alert.

On August 15, the Taliban captured Kabul and the US-backed government fell. After this, many countries have started evacuating their citizens and diplomats from Kabul. Thousands of people have gathered at Kabul Airport, who want to leave the country. India is also engaged in the evacuation of Hindu and Sikh Afghans along with its citizens under the mission ‘Devi Shakti’. Meanwhile, on Thursday, the Islamic State’s Khorasan module carried out a fidayeen attack outside the airport, killing at least 169 Afghan civilians, including 13 American soldiers.
