The Zonal Police Headquarters of Jammu and Kashmir received intelligence inputs about a possible suicide attack during the Republic parade in Srinagar on January 23. The headquarters sent a flash message on this issue with the title ‘urgent.’ The information revealed that a Pune based girl is going to attack the Republic day parade as a suicide bomber in Jammu and Kashmir.
There was this girl from Pune who has been tracked by the Security Agencies almost from two years. She was even taken into custody by the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) for some suspicious activity on the internet. She was found chatting in some closed groups related to Islamic terrorist groups.
The entire intelligence agency was on the work of tracing the current location and latest activities of this girl. Police were able to trace the lady and arrested here on the night before the Republic day. However, Police didn’t find any pieces of evidence implying the terror attack from the girl.
The girl was trying to come to Kashmir from the past two years. She was in touch with few people from Kashmir on the internet. She is said to have come to Kashmir on January 20 and met one of the girls she was in touch with. When asked about the reason on phone, she said that she came here for a suicide attack.
The security agencies became alert after this call and began searching for her. However, the girl said that the reply to her friend on phone was just a joke. The girl is handed over to her parents as she hasn’t done anything illegal so far.
However, there are suspicions on her by the way she was in contact with several people in Jammu and Kashmir and her reasons were doubtful. Only time will tell if the intelligence agencies triggered a reaction to a silly call or are there more than what we can see in the case of this girl.
