Following the environment of high alert after the Uri attacks, West Bengal Special task Force on Monday arrested 6 suspected terrorists. The police claim that these suspects were planning a terrorist attack in the country. It is reported that 5 of the 6 terrorists are named in the NIA charge sheet, in connection with the Bardhaman blast, two years ago. Earlier on September 16, a high alert was issued by the central intelligence units throughout the state on the eve of the Vishwakarma Puja. Though senior officials had assured that there was no need to panic, they had always to be more careful in order to keep the state safe from terrorist threats.
All the police stations had been asked to take immediate actions in the case of any suspicious activities, and security had been maximised in many public places. The six arrested terrorists are speculated to be belonging to the terrorist organisation Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen. Various teams of policemen had been tasked with remaining vigilant to stop terrorist attacks, that would target areas that expect heavy crowds. Following the terror attack near the Line of Control in Uri, the entire country has been on high alert to prevent any further attacks.
Earlier on September 22, a terror alert was issued after the sighting of two suspicious looking men in Mumbai’s Uran. Mumbai police too have been constantly vigilant and combing out residential areas across the city. the country is already reeling under the grief of the 18 Indian soldiers who had been killed during the terrorist attacks in Uri.
