BREAKING NEWS: 22 airports in India warned of possible terror attacks
The warning has been specifically sent to border states including Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Rajasthan and Gujara. Capital Delhi has also been marked for careful vigil.
The Civil Aviation Security Bureau has also written to the police chiefs in each state, the CISF or paramilitary force which guards airports, as well as to state-run and private airlines alerting them to the security threat.
As per details by NDTV, While baggage will be subjected to more random and detailed checks, parking lots as well as loading areas used by airport vehicles will be more carefully monitored.
"Agencies are concerned about a terror attack in retaliation for last week's surgical strikes in Pakistani Kashmir which saw soldiers targeting seven terrorist launch pads or gathering areas," NDTV reported.
Earlier, Indian National Security Advisor Ajit Doval briefed Prime Minister Narendra Modi on security at the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir. Intelligence agencies have warned of nearly 100 "terrorists" being prepped to cross the de-facto border before winter sets in and the routes into Kashmir are covered with snow.
