NEW DELHI: Jaish e Mohammad (JeM) and Lashkar e Toiba (LeT), are working in coordination to carry out a high profile attack in Kashmir using a vehicle laden with explosives. Security agencies in the Kashmir have come across this information through mobile phone signals between two groups. NEWS18 reported on Tuesday.
According to the latest inputs, the two militant groups, which are acting in close coordination with each other and the Hizbul Mujahideen are now planning to carry out a ‘spectacular’ car or truck bomb attack in the valley. Other attacks, meanwhile, are likely to continue.
A senior officer has said, they have been getting inputs that the militant groups are working with each other to carry out a big, spectacular attack. The idea is to ram an explosives-laden vehicle into a high profile location, like the residence of a senior government functionary or senior army official, an army base, a hotel or on the legislative assembly in Jammu where the session is in progress right now.”
On the Monday’s fidayeen attack, the officer said that they had received inputs about a possible LeT attack in Srinagar a couple of days ago.
“We received an input about Lashkar cadres moving in downtown Srinagar and we had information that they had come here on a suicide mission. Whether the current fidayeen squad, which is being fought in Karan Nagar, are the same militants or belong to the same group, we don’t know yet,” said the officer.
Security officers in the state say that JeM has been working hard to makes its presence in the Valley from last three months to give some resting space to Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) and LeT, which suffered huge losses last year.
Security inputs reveal JeM is focusing to attack military and paramilitary camps, LeT cadres plan to target residence of security personnel.
