Article 370: JeM threatens Modi, Shah and Doval


New Delhi: Alert has been sounded across India after Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Muhammed (JeM) issued death threat to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and National Security Adviser Ajit Doval to take revenge over abrogation of the Article 370.

The Bureau of Civil Aviation received a threat letter in this regard.

With Pakistan’s failure to internationalize the Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) issue, its sponsored terror outfits have apparently been pressed in to ‘do something” against India. Indian Army chief Bipin Rawat and other security and intelligence chiefs have also said that Islamabad is grouping together terrorists along the Indo-Pakistan border for infiltration and attacks.

The Intelligence agencies have been put on high alert since. According to the purported letter, Modi, Shah and Doval are on the hit-list of the terror organisation to avenge the abrogation of Article 370. 

In the letter, JeM also threatened to attack 30 cities, including those in J&K, Pathankot, Amritsar, Jaipur and Gandhinagar, officials said. The terror organisation is also planning to target four Indian airports.

According to officials, JeM is preparing a squad to target Modi. Earlier reports also surfaced that the Hafiz Saeed-led Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) is planning to carry out terror attack in Modi’s Lok Sabha constituency Varanasi.

Meanwhile, the Indian Air Force (IAF) bases in Srinagar, Awantipora, and Pathankot have been put on high alert at orange level after intelligence agencies warned that eight to ten JeM terrorists could try to carry out a suicide attack against these bases. Senior officers are reviewing security arrangements round-the-clock to tackle the threat. 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 airbases in J&K 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.

Pakistan-based, sponsored and funded terrorist group Jaish-e-Muhammed (JeM) has changed its name to Majlis Wurasa-e-Shuhuda Jammu wa Kashmir in a bid to ward off global pressure. The bedridden head of the JeM Masood Azar was also declared as a global terrorist few months back by United Nations.
