Delhi, 4 other states on high alert over possible attacks by Pakistan-based terror groups

New Delhi: Amid apprehensions of backlash by Pakistan-backed terrorists, the Centre on Friday asked the agencies to intensify security at all industrial units, airports and other locations across the country.

The Home Ministry has asked Delhi, Rajasthan, Punjab, Jammu & Kashmir and Gujarat asked to be extra vigiliant.

The alert was issued amid reports that some terrorists might have crossed over to India during last one month and could be retaliate in view of "surgical strikes."

The surgical strikes were carried out early Thursday on seven launch pads by the Indian Army which said it inflicted "significant casualties" on the terrorists and those who supported them.

The strikes came 11 days after the Uri terror attack on September 18, which killed 19 Indian soldiers. India has blamed Pakistan militants for the Uri attack.

A nationwide alert was issued on Friday after intelligence inputs on possible attacks by Pakistan-based terror groups in the country in retaliation to the Indian Army's surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control.
