Terrorists are planning another Pulwama-type attack on Sunday; intelligence agencies have told Zee Media. Sources added that the terrorists could use a motorbike to carry out the attack.
According to sources, the inputs received by intelligence agencies have suggested a strike on the National Highway using a remote control.
 
This has prompted agencies to enhance security along the highway and convoys of security forces have been asked to start their movement after 9 AM.
 
The report prepared by the agencies reveal that anti-theft remote alarms or keys use in motorcycles and vehicle have become a favourite tool to trigger improvised explosive devices (IED) in Jammu and Kashmir.
 
Recently, an IED attack was used to target personnel of Army’s 44 Rasthriya Rifles (RR) unit in Shopian. The investigation revealed that a remote key was used by terrorists to lock and unlock a two-wheeler.
 
Terrorists have been using a combination of military grade explosives such as RDX, PETN, TNT and commercial ones like slurries and ammonium nitrate to make IEDs.
 
The report also added that the ‘rudimentary’ command-wire mechanism were used by the terrorists to blast IEDs in order to launch precise attacks.
 
On February 14, forty Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans were martyred after a Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorist rammed an explosive-laden car into a bus in their convoy in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir.
