Navy on alert anticipating terror attack from PakNew Delhi, Aug 9 (IANS) The Indian Navy has put its warships on alert on both the eastern and western coasts over the likelihood of a terror attack from Pakistan, defence sources said on Friday.

An attack from Pakistan is anticipated by military intelligence after the Indian Parliament withdrew special status to J&K on August 5 through a Presidential order by reading down Article 370. The Parliament also bifurcated the state of J&K into two union territories through a legislation passed later by both houses.

Security forces are also on high alert in the Kashmir valley ahead of Eid which will be celebrated in J&K on Monday. At least four ‘hotspots’, in areas which have witnessed unrest in the past over anti-India sentiments, have been identified in south Kashmir.
