Srinagar: A high-level terror alert has been sounded in Jammu & Kashmir, with top government sources claiming that a major attack is being planned in capital city Srinagar and neighbouring Awantipora.

Under the militants’ radar are the air bases located in both the towns, reports said citing Intelligence inputs.

“Intelligence input warns against terrorists’ plans to carry out an attack on Srinagar and Awantipora air bases. Security forces on high alert in and around these bases,” news agency ANI reported quoting government sources.

The alert issued at Srinagar and Awantipora air bases comes over three years after militants affiliated to Jaish-e-Mohammed struck at the Pathankot air base located close to the borders of Punjab.
