New Delhi: Terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) is planning to strike North Indian cities, like the one carried out in Punjab's Pathankot air base, with help from Pakistan's ISI and the Indian Mujahideen, which also operates from the neighbouring nation, a media report said on Tuesday, citing military intelligence.
JeM's associates have started a recce of north Indian cities to replicate Pathankot-style attack, TOI reported, citing a military intelligence report said to be submitted to the Punjab government.
Quoting the intelligence report, TOI said that JeM commander Awais Mohammed is planning to enter India from Malaysia to carry out fresh attacks. Awais, who reportedly hails from Okara in Pakistan, has been tasked with “monitoring the fresh strikes”.
The intelligence report was shared with the Punjab government on May 18, according to TOI.
JeM has opened three new 'offices' in Pakistan for the purpose of executing fresh terror strikes in India, the report said.
"JeM is reviving its offices and network in Kohat and Hazara region. JeM is also reinvigorating its recruitment drive. A new training facility has also been constructed by JeM at Balakot," TOI said citing the intelligence report.
"Real-time reconnaissance of the cities is being carried out by the sleeper cells of ISI and Indian Mujahideen," the report added.
