New Delhi:
Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) is plotting the assassination of five individuals in Jammu and Kashmir — two security forces officers, a journalist, a professor and a BJP spokesperson — according to the latest intelligence inputs.

The inputs have been provided to all security agencies by the Multi Agency Centre, a coordination authority under the Union Home Ministry that includes representatives from security and intelligence agencies.

The inputs say JeM terrorist Adil Gulzar organised a meeting in Pakharpur in Budgam district of Kashmir in December, along with an unidentified foreign terrorist. They are said to be targeting a senior superintendent of police, a doctor with one of the paramilitary forces, a journalist, a professor and a BJP spokesperson.

While the SSP in question was at the forefront of numerous encounters in his last posting, he is also an outspoken officer who has often hit out at terrorism and the Pakistani narrative. He was extremely popular with local residents in his last posting.

The senior medical officer is also popular among residents, as he has been at the forefront of trying to close the gap and eliminate the mistrust between them and the forces.

The Kashmiri professor has been vocal against terrorism, and supports the removal of Article 370.

The journalist on the target list is known as an independent voice that has often brought out the dark face of terrorism in his writings.
