New Delhi, January 5 Security agencies have flashed an alert after an SUV with a “JK” number plate belonging to the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) was stolen from outside a camp of the force late last month, official sources said.

The alert, warning against misuse by terrorists ahead of Republic Day celebrations, has been issued by multiple agencies, including the Delhi Police, CRPF and Central agencies.

Official sources said a white Sumo Victa of the CRPF was stolen from outside a camp of the force in the RK Puram area on the intervening night of December 29-30. “The official number plate of the stolen four-wheeler is “JK 02A W5441,” they said.

The vehicle, with a ‘police’ sticker, was stolen by at least three persons that night, the sources said, referring to CCTV footage of the incident.

The alert issued by security agencies, especially to agencies and forces based in Kashmir, said the vehicle could be misused for a possible sabotage attack or fidayeen raid.

Intelligence inputs have already stated that “militants can use a vehicle laden with explosives to attack a camp (of security forces/agencies) in the run up to Republic Day celebrations.” — PTI
