Srinagar: Terrorists are planning to target security installations, probably in Jammu and Kashmir, intelligence inputs revealed on Wednesday. The Pathankot-like attack is likely to be carried out by terror organisation Al-Qaeda with the help of Masoor Azhar-led Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM). However, if the plan is executed, the former will take the full responsibility of it. Also Read - 'Can't Even Kiss My Wife', Says Farooq Abdullah, Laments The Pandemic

Meanwhile, there is no concrete information on the target of the terrorists.
The report comes a few months after the dastardly Pulwama terror attack in which 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans were killed as an explosive-laden truck rammed into a bus in their convoy in Jammu and Kashmir on February 14. The responsibility of the attack was claimed by Pakistan-based JeM.
