Lashkar-e-Taiba plot to attack PM Modi in Delhi unearthed
New Delhi, Dec 6 (IBNS): The Intelligence Bureau (IB) along with the Delhi Police's special cell are conducting a joint operation to nab Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists who have managed to sneak in to Jammu & Kashmir from across the border and plan to attack PM Narendra Modi, media reports said on Sunday.
"At least four terrorists had infiltrated into the country last month and were in contact with Lashkar commander Abu Dujana for logistics and ground support," The Times of India reported quoting sources.
The search operation comes after the IB unearthed the plan of the LeT terrorists' to target Prime Minister Narendra Modi's gatherings or assassinate other high-profile politicians in Delhi.
"The militants had two plans — to carry out a mass shooting in a Paris-like or 26/11 type attack at a gathering attended by Modi. The militant was supposed to blow himself off if he failed to penetrate Modi's cordon, considered impregnable, or hurl a grenade at the crowd," the newspaper report claimed.
