Uttar Pradesh on high alert after 7 terrorists enter state through Nepal border 

Seven terrorists have entered Uttar Pradesh through the Nepal border, the intelligence inputs have said, following which the entire state has been put on high alert. The development comes days ahead of the much-awaited Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya title suit. Commenting on the situation, a senior police official said terror groups from Pakistan are targetting Uttar Pradesh. 

"Pakistani terror groups are targeting Uttar Pradesh and this input has put us on high alert. The 14 Kosi Parikrama has begun in Ayodhya on Tuesday morning and will conclude on Wednesday morning. The event attracts lakhs of devotees from all over the country," said a senior police official.

According to the intelligence input, the seven-member group that has entered the state is linked to terror groups operating from Pakistan. 

As per the inputs, the terrorists could be hiding in Ayodhya, Faizabad and Gorakhpur, the official said.

Five of the seven terrorists have reportedly been identified as Mohammed Yakub, Abu Hamza, Mohammed Shahbaz, Nisar Ahmed and Mohammed Qaumi Chaudhary.

Sources, however, said that the group is likely to enter Ayodhya as Hindu men, which will make it easy for them to mingle with the devotees.
