LUDHIANA: Intelligence agencies had received inputs and issued three alerts this year about the possibility of Pakistan’s ISI and pro-Khalistan terror outfits carrying out multiple terror attacks on sensitive buildings and crowded areas in Punjab. The latest alert was issued on Thursday when the Ludhiana District Court blast occurred.

According to the information, alerts were issued on July 9, December 7 and December 23,  on the day of the blast. The alerts also mentioned that IED could be used in the attacks. Pakistan-backed Babbar Khalsa is suspected to be behind the Ludhiana court blast, according to sources. 

A senior officer said that after the Red Fort incident, intelligence agencies were on their toes in Punjab to keep a close watch on Khalistan forces trying to revive their movement. The handlers based in Pakistan were giving instructions to their on-ground workers to execute terror activities in Punjab. Many of such attempts were foiled in a joint operation with state police, he added.

According to the police, the explosion took place in a washroom on the second floor of the District and Sessions Court complex in Ludhiana around 12:22 pm.

 

The forensic team and the Bomb Detection & Disposal Squad, after preliminary analysis, have ascertained, that a “fairly good quantity of high-grade explosives had been used" in the Ludhiana court blast on Thursday. "High-grade explosives are usually PETN or RDX,” a source said.
