Pakistan's may trigger 26/11-style attack ahead of Gujarat assembly elections: Report
New Delhi : Pakistan is reportedly planning a Mumbai 26/11-type terror attack in Gujarat ahead of assembly elections in December, this year.
According to reports, Pakistan’s spy agency – Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) – may target the election rallies in the coastal state.
ISI has been held responsible for plotting and carrying out several terror plots on Indian soil in the past.
Earlier this month, Pakistani troops captured four Indian fishing boats and snatched the unique identification devices (UIDs) from the occupants and the ISI may use these devices in terror activities against India, intelligence reports said.
Intelligence reports suggested that terrorists may use the Indian UIDs to sneak into the Indian territory to create trouble, a India.com report said.
The threat looms large on Gujarat elections where PM Narendra Modi and UP CM Yogi Aditynanad are expected to conduct extensive campaign activities.
Meanwhile, intelligence agencies have sounded an alert in coastal areas of Gujarat.
Assembly elections in Gujarat will be held in two phases on December 9 and 14. Results would be declared on December 18.
