Twenty-three places across India face a terror threat on January 23. Ahead of the Republic Day celebrations, the Intelligence Bureau has issued specific alerts on the “imminent” threat to high value targets, including a major IT centre in Bengaluru, American Centre in Delhi, VHP HQ, Gujarat, a museum in Jaipur and Dakhsineswar Temple in Kolkata by terror groups. Two targets, one each in Guwahati and Maharashtra, are yet to be decoded. Bangladesh-based group Hijb-ut-Tahrir, with support from Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Tayyeba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) and Indian Mujahideen (IM), are planning to target 23 places on January 23 in the country. The terror groups plan to hit the targets through bomb attacks or suicide missions. The input was received from a source of the agency on January 14 and was circulated to all the other security agencies after assessment. The IB has also issued an alert suggesting presence of two more Pakistani terrorists reported to have been moving near village Pandher in Gurdaspur. “The terrorists are possibly armed and carrying rucksacks,” the alert said advising the security agencies to revisit security arrangements at vital /iconic locations with high footfall areas in the wake of Pathankot airbase terror attack and undertake preventive and precautionary measures. “There has been specific intelligence input and assessment from Intelligence sources that JeM is planning fidayeen attack in the lines of repetition of a Pathankot-type incident which appears to be imminent,” read the alert circulated to various security agencies. “It is possible that high value targets like DMRC, Taj Mahal, Red Fort, Samadhi Sthal, ITPO and Punjab and Haryana High Court, Chandigarh with large footfalls may be targeted by these terrorist groups and their supporters,” said the intelligence alert. The agency has also advised Jammu & Kashmir and Punjab-based units of the security forces to ensure highest level of alertness. It has also suggested that all the Reserve Battalions be placed on maximum alert. It further advised beefing up security of all the campuses and family quarters of Defence and paramilitary installations, especially in Punjab and Jammu & Kashmir. With specific intelligence inputs suggesting that the terror groups may hit certain high value targets ahead of the Republic Day celebrations, the national Capital, Punjab and Jammu & Ksshmir have been put on red alert, the highest possible security categorisation. Earlier, the IB had intercepted conversation of a suspected terrorist by the first name Dilshad, who was moving in an auto-rickshaw on January 3, with two others which revealed that four terrorists were planning to execute bomb blasts.
