Bomb Alert at Pathankot Railway Station


Pathankot:  The train station at Pathankot near the Punjab border with Pakistan is being evacuated after an abandoned bag triggered  security concerns.

Earlier this month, the air force base at Pathankot was attacked by Pakistani terrorists; seven military personnel were martyred. The operation to secure the base stretched into 80 hours.

A huge alert has been declared for Republic Day with security agencies warning of a “very real” ISIS threat. 14 suspected ISIS affiliates and sympathisers have been arrested from different parts of the country.
