“Pakistanis shared this information with High Commission in Islamabad and the Americans. They have also informed us about it. So this information has come directly as well as via the Americans to us,” the report quoting an official said.

It said that the attack is being planned to avenge the killing of militant commander Zakir Musa and was likely to place around Awantipora area of Pulwama district in south Kashmir.

“We are always on alert, especially in South Kashmir. But we are taking this alert very seriously,” an official has told the Indian Express.

Zakir Musa broke away from the Hizbul Mujahideen in May 2017 to set up the Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind, which he claimed was a local affiliate of al-Qaeda.

Musa was killed in south Kashmir during a fierce gunfight with the security forces last month.
