Raina, an RSS pracharak who was appointed as the state BJP head last year, is already a state government protectee.
Senior police officials said that they were aware of the threats but added that such warnings come almost on a regular basis. The intelligence input is being verified by other concerned security agencies, they said.
In an earlier warning on June 5, intelligence inputs revealed that terrorists were planning to target security installations, probably in Jammu and Kashmir. 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 full responsibility for it.
