The CID department of Jammu & Kashmir Police were tipped off about the plan which asked terror operatives to “make every possible attempt to once again target Parliament”.
If they fail to attack Parliament, the group has been instructed to target prominent landmarks such as the Delhi Secretariat, Akshardham and the Lotus Temple along with other crowded places and places of prominence.
Following the report, information has been communicated to all field officers and “attempts are being made to foil any such attempt”.
