PM Modi lauds security forces, says Jaish had planned major terror attack

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said security forces thwarted a major terror attack planned by the Pakistan-based terror organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed by killing 4 terrorists in the Nagrota encounter on Thursday. PM Narendra Modi said in a tweet, “Neutralising of 4 terrorists belonging to Pakistan-based terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed and the presence of large cache of weapons and explosives with them indicates that their efforts to wreak major havoc and destruction have once again been thwarted.” “Our security forces have once again displayed utmost bravery and professionalism. Thanks to their alertness, they have defeated a nefarious plot to target grassroots level democratic exercises in Jammu and Kashmir,” said PM Narendra Modi a day after the encounter at a toll plaza in Jammu’s Nagrota.

PM Narendra Modi also held a review meeting on Friday with the top security officials and Home Minister Amit Shah as it emerged that the Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists killed in the Nagrota encounter on the outskirts of Jammu, were planning a big terror operation on the anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai attack. Sources have said NSA Ajit Doval, foreign secretary and top intelligence officials also attended the meeting with PM Narendra Modi in which he took stock of the situation following the encounter. The terrorists were planning "something big" on the anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, the sources added.
