Pathankot: A bomb squad was rushed to Chakki Bridge area of Punjab’s Pathankot District on Thursday evening after a suspicious suitcase was found.
The police, meanwhile, evacuated the area and took control of the situation. Earlier on Tuesday, three armed men hijacked a car at gunpoint in Sujanpur area of Pathankot District near the Jammu and Kashmir Border.
The incident assumes importance as similar incident had taken place before the terror attack at the Pathankot air base on January 6, when terrorists had hijacked a car belonging to a Gurdaspur Police official.
Meanwhile, Delhi is on high alert as the central agencies issued a warning about a former Pakistan army soldier entering India through Punjab with six terrorists last month.
