‘Jaish terrorists planned ‘something big’ on 26/11 anniversary’

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a review meeting with the top security brass, including Home Minister Amit Shah, as it emerged that Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists killed in an encounter on the outskirts of Jammu, were planning a big terror operation on the anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai attack.

Quoting government sources, a PTI report said NSA Ajit Doval, foreign secretary and top intelligence officials attended the meeting in which Modi took stock of the situation.

Four suspected Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists were killed and two policemen injured in a gunbattle in Nagrota on Thursday after a truck carrying newly infiltrated militants was intercepted.

Meanwhile, Indian Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane has issued a strict warning to Pakistan that no intruder who crosses the Line of Control (LoC) to infiltrate into India will survive.

He said this hours after four Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists were killed in an encounter with security forces on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway.

“This was a very successful operation by the security forces. It shows the high degree of synergy between all the security forces operating on the ground. The message is very clear for the adversary and terrorists that whosoever tries to infiltrate towards our side would be dealt in the same manner and they would not be able to go back,” General Naravane told Aajtak.
