Meanwhile, the Indian Air Force (IAF) bases in Srinagar, Awantipora, Jammu, Pathankot and Hindon have been put on a high alert at orange level after intelligence agencies warned that eight to ten JeM terrorists would try to carry out a suicide attack against Air Force bases in and around Jammu and Kashmir. Senior officers are reviewing security arrangements 24x7 to tackle the threat. The alert has been issued after security agencies monitored movements of Jaish terrorists.
A similar alert was also issued in May this year at Srinagar, and Awantipora airbase stations in Jammu and Kashmir after hand-drawn maps of these airbases were recovered from terrorists. The Srinagar airbase was at the forefront when the Pakistani fighter jets violated the Indian airspace on February 27.
