India has stepped up security on its western borders to very high levels following credible intelligence inputs warnings that two groups of Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and one group of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) are waiting to infiltrate from Kathua and Poonchh sectors in Jammu to orchestrate terror attacks before US president Barack Obama’s visit.A group of 12-15 fully trained and equipped Lashkar terrorists who are waiting to infiltrate through Kathua under the supervision of LeT commanders Abdullah Shaheen and Taya Rafiq. Another group of 10 LeT terrorists are waiting at the launching pads in PoK to infiltrate through Poonchh under commander Abdul Rashid, said sources.Besides, the JeM has declared 2015 to be the year of Inquilab-e-Jihad and has also directed its cadres to infiltrate J&K and carry out attacks. “The LeT is also trying to unleash its sleeper cells already present in J&K to carry out terror attacks,” said sources adding that at least 7 LeT terrorists are on the prowl in Kashmir of which 3-4 are foreign terrorists.High threat perception stands from Pakistan based terror outfits despite USA telling Pakistan in unequivocal terms to rein in terror groups to ensure that no terror incident takes place, said government sources.”There are inputs that rogue elements within ISI and Army may try to stage Chittisinghpura kind of massacre during President Obama’s visit. We have picked up information about three groups,” said BSF sources.During US President Bill Clinton’s visit in March 2000, the LeT terrorists wearing Army fatigue had killed 36 Sikhs celebrating Hola Mahalla to create communal tensions on March 26, 2000.Officials said that the threat perception in the capital has been more or less taken care of by making security arrangements impregnable which would compel terrorists to look for other venues elsewhere, especially in Jammu and Kashmir or big Metros. Britain warns India of possible terror attack by ISNew Delhi: Britain has warned India about possible attack by ISIS and said all efforts must be taken to check activities of the Middle-East terrorist group. British officials have conveyed this to their Indian counterparts at the Indo-UK Counter Terrorism Joint Working Group meeting held in London on January 15-16. Officials said that during the meeting, India had asked Britain to impress upon Pakistan not to differentiate between “good” and “bad” terrorists in the wake of recent attack on a school in Peshawar and said that it must take a firm stand on why Pakistan had become a nursery of terrorists.”We have asked Britain to be alert about possible attack by Lashkar-e-Taiba there. Britain in turn has warned us that an attack by ISIS could take place in India,” an official said.
