Pakistan Military intelligence (MI) and ISI may be planning to carry out another conspiracy against Indian Army jawans, according to intelligence sources.
Chatter floated by a Pakistani number claims that the Pakistani MI and ISI agents operating in Kashmir are planning to “mix poison” in ration stocks of security forces deployed in the Valley.
The intel note, accessed by India Today TV, said necessary measures should be taken to ensure the security of ration depots of all the camps, especially in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
In view of the fresh intel, it has also been recommended that all ration procured for security forces across India shall be subjected to frequent checks “to rule out any untoward incident or attempt”.
The fresh intel note has emerged as the situation in Kashmir remains tense owing to cross-border conflict. Three civilians were killed yesterday in Kashmir in fresh cross-border shelling by the Pakistani military.
Meanwhile, Pakistan on Friday released Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, the braveheart who was captured on Wednesday by Pakistan after his Mig 21 Bison aircraft was shot down.
While the return of Varthaman marks the end of escalation between the two nations since the Pulwama terror attack, tension between the two neighbouring countries has not stopped, largely due to daily cross-border skirmishes.
Several nations including the US had condemned Pakistan after the Pulwama terror attack which claimed the life of 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans.
At present, security forces in the Valley are on high alert due to an increase in cross-border firing over the past few days; a number of terrorists lodged in various parts of Kashmir have also been neutralised.
