New Delhi: The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) has directed all its troops and facilities in the Kashmir Valley to remain on high alert following specific intelligence inputs of a major terror attack. The alert comes in the wake of a grenade attack on CRPF personnel in Pulwama on Wednesday and on its Bandipora camp on June 5.

Sources said the directions have come from the “highest quarters” within the country’s largest paramilitary force, which has a sizeable presence in the Kashmir Valley.

 

“...What is alarming is that intelligence reports indicate that the intensity of attacks would increase substantially after the holy month of Ramzan,” a senior security official said.

Security forces have been specifically asked to remain alert for grenade attacks, because, sources said, militants want to cut down on risks by lobbing grenades and making a hasty retreat.
