Delhi Police on Tuesday has issued an advisory along with the photograph of two terrorists suspected to be hiding in the city. The police have asked the public to keep a lookout for them.
The photograph released along with the advisory shows two bearded men in kurtas and traditional headgear posing next to a milestone reading ‘Delhi 360 km, Ferozepur 9 km’. Ferozepur is located on the India-Pakistan border in Punjab.
The Police have appealed to people to report to the Paharganj Police Station on 011-23520787 or 011-2352474 in case they have any information regarding these two terrorists.
The Punjab Police was placed on alert last week after its counter-intelligence wing suggested that six to seven Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists “could be moving towards Delhi” from the state.
The letter, issued by the office of the Punjab Inspector General of Police (Counter Intelligence) to law-enforcement agencies across the state on Thursday, sought the installation of checkpoints at all important routes, strict vehicle inspections and the adoption of stringent counter-terror measures. “There is a need to review and strengthen the second line of defence along the India-Pakistan border, and coordinate closely with the Border Security Force and other defence establishments in your areas,” the document added.
The letter had come close on the heels of four people taking over a taxi at gunpoint around 11:30 pm on November 13, sparking fears of another Pathankot-like terrorist attack. Police said the suspects, who hired the Toyota Innova from Jammu, forced its driver out near Madhopur and drove off.
