    'LeT planning attacks in Odisha and Maharashtra'

    Guwahati, Jun 26: Terror outfit, Lashkar-e-Taiba are planning attacks in Maharashtra and Odisha in addition to making fresh recruitment efforts in the Northwest, said Narayan Choudhury, DGP Assam.

    "Our intelligence inputs point to such attacks being planned. Among the targets are Puri where lakhs of pilgrims gather for events like the famous Ratha Yatra," he said.

    "Besides there are strategic targets in Odisha like the missile launching range at Balasore. As for Maharashtra, Mumbai has always been a target due to its status as the commercial capital of the country," he said.

    He further said that the inputs have been shared with the Central government.

    "Occasionally, we get such information and pass them on to central intelligence agencies because we cannot corroborate them from our own side," he said.

    The information on recruitment efforts have been received from state police intelligence and local informers, he said.

    "The information has come from local agencies. The LeT and the HuM are trying to recruit youngsters in Assam," he said.

    "Our reports also say that such recruitment efforts are also being made in Manipur and other Northeastern states. It seems the jihadi outfits are trying to spread their tentacles across the region," the DGP said.
