New Delhi: An ex-military personnel of the Pakistan army is planning a terror attack in hotels and hospitals in the national capital during Holi, security agencies have warned.

 

The police in Delhi, Punjab and Assam are on high alert following information about the former Pakistani soldier.

In a communication, the central security agencies said Mohammad Khurshid Alam alias Jahangir, an ex-military personnel of Pakistan Army, who had worked as a recruiter, coordinator and guide of Jehadi elements in Assam, had crossed over to India from Pakistan through the Indo-Pak border in Pathankot on February 26 along with six hardcore terrorists.

”The intention of this group is to kill citizens in Delhi in hotels and hospitals on or before Holi,” the communication said.

The agencies said Alam had visited a madrasa in Barpeta district in Assam in September 2015.

The ex-Pakistan armyman had stayed in the madrasa for five days and thereafter left for Chirang district, bordering Bhutan.

Alam had used another madrasa in Dhubri district in Assam as his base and used to visit other parts of the state, it said.

In Dhubri, a teacher of the madrasa provided all required logistical support to Alam, the communication added.
