Intelligence agencies have warned of a possible terror attack at the ‘Bhoomi pujan’ ceremony of Ram temple in Ayodhya on August 5. The agencies have also reported of an imminent threat on the Independence Day programme on August 15. According to NDTV, intelligence agencies also say the attack can coincide with the anniversary of the Centre’s scrapping of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 of the Constitution, which is also on August 5.
Security arrangements have been tightened at Ayodhya, Jammu and Kashmir and Delhi, sources told NDTV.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to attend the ground-breaking ceremony in Ayodhya on August 5.
The function is also expected to be attended by other VIPs including BJP mentors LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi, Union minister Uma Bharti and other leaders of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the ideological mentor of the BJP.
Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence, sources said, has prepared a complete plan for a terrorist attack.
As per NDTV, intelligence agencies have reported that the ISI has pushed terrorists from Lashkar-e Taiba and Jaish-e Mohammad into India with this aim.
These terrorists were sent to India in groups, each of them containing three to five terrorists, sources said. All these terrorists have received training in Afghanistan. Each group has been ordered to launch attack separately, so it can late be described as an internal matter of India, sources told NDTV.
In July 2005, terrorists had tried to attack the makeshift temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya.
