Wanted Terrorist Zakir Musa Spotted in Punjab in Turban, Firozabad and Bathinda Put on High Alert
Zakir Musa is the chief of Jammu and Kashmir-based Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind terror outfit with reported links to Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).
New Delhi: Firozabad and Bathinda regions were put on high alert on Thursday morning after Kashmiri terrorist Zakir Musa was spotted in Punjab, nearly three weeks after the Amritsar grenade attack.
The militant was spotted wearing a Sikh turban.
The grenade attack took place in November while the state was on high alert following an input claiming that a group of six to seven JeM terrorists were in Punjab and were 'planning' to move to Delhi.
Punjab police in Gurdaspur had even pasted posters of Zakir Musa, the chief of Jammu and Kashmir based Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind terror outfit with reported links to Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).
Army Chief Bipin Rawat had recently warned that attempts were being made to revive insurgency in Punjab and had even cautioned that people needed to be careful especially during the festival season to prevent anti-national forces from succeeding in their nefarious designs.
