Key Highlights

  • Security has been intensified in the national capital, especially near the three borders of Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur

New Delhi: Security agencies have put the national capital on high alert after they gathered intel about a possible terrorist attack in Delhi ahead of the country’s 75th Independence Day on August 15.

The alert for Delhi Police has been issued for the period between the ongoing Monsoon Session of Parliament and August 15.

As per the intel, there is a major terrorist conspiracy that is being hatched to rattle Delhi on August 5, and Pakistan-based terrorists could carry out an attack in the national capital.

Security agencies have warned the Delhi Police that Article 370 was abrogated from Jammu and Kashmir on 5 August 2019, and as a result terrorists are trying to carry out a big attack in the national capital on this day itself.

Special training has also been given to Delhi Police and other defence forces to deal with the threat of ‘drone jihad’. Trainings of ‘soft kill’ and ‘hard kill’ are some of the necessary skills taught to the security agencies in wake of the alert.

It has also been said in the alert that anti-social elements and terrorist sleeper cells are trying to dampen the country’s atmosphere by making the Covid-19 pandemic as an excuse.

Newly-appointment Delhi Police Commissioner Balaji Srivastava earlier this month directed the force to train their attention on anti-terror measures ahead of Independence Day.

He directed all Deputy Commissioners of Police (DCPs) to ramp up inspection of hotels and guest houses, to carry out verification of tenants and domestic help, and also check cyber cafes and second-hand car-dealers.

The Delhi Police Commissioner also conducted a citywide patrol on Sunday night with over 30,000 police personnel.

Security has been intensified in the national capital, especially near the three borders of Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur where farmers have been protesting since late last year.
