NEW DELHI:  While investigators at the National Technical Research Organisation (NTRO) here are sifting through the data from two GPS navigation devices found in Gurdaspur terror attack, intelligence agencies on Tuesday warned that at least two groups of terrorists are waiting at launch pads in Pakistan opposite Jammu sector to infiltrate into Indian territory. Since July 17 this could be fourth such warning from the intelligence agencies.

Initial information gathered by the investigators says Dina Nagar was a soft target because there was open access to the areas, after terrorists suspected to be part of Lashkar-e-Taiyaba fidayeen unit, sneaked into Indian side through a riverine gap in the Ravi. In one GPS, they have found the areas showing Parmanand village, Talwandi point and Dina Nagar, while the other had Gurdaspur Civil Lines marked in it. According to an official, a high level security team from Delhi had a meeting with Punjab officials earlier this month to discuss the security concerns and possible attempts by Pakistani state and non-state actors to destabilise the peace in the bordering areas. They had also discussed interrogation of two arrested militants which had confirmed that the ISI wants to open a new front after the BSF managed to plug the security gaps at International Border (IB) in Jammu sector.
