Terror threat in Punjab: Gurdaspur’s Tibri cantt area closed


Punjab’s Gurdaspur was on high alert on Wednesday night and security forces were on the lookout for “two men in army uniform” who had been reportedly seen by locals moving in a suspicious manner in a village.

Some locals in Tibri reported in the day that “two men in army uniform” had been sighted near a cantonment area, police said.

A farmer Satnam Singh of Pandher village was the one to make the claim first, saying he had seen two suspected two persons in Tibri while he was working in the fields, police said.

All Western Sector airbases have been put on high alert after the movement of two suspicious men in Pandher Village in Gurdaspur.

Intelligence input has suggested that more terrorists are at large.

Several countries have condemned the terror attack in which seven security men were martyred.
