ISLAMABAD, (PTI): Pakistan today confirmed that it had shared intelligence with India on possible terror strikes in Gujarat and other parts of the country on Maha Shivratri festival.
Sartaj Aziz, Pakistan Prime Minister’s Advisor on Foreign Affairs, said that the confirmation establishes Islamabad’s commitment towards fight against terrorism.
“Sharing of intelligence among various nations of the world is a routine practice and this happens around the world. However, this time it was somehow leaked to media. But this showed Pakistan’s commitment to fight terrorism,” Mr Aziz said.
According to media reports, Pakistan’s National Security Advisor Lieutenant-General Naseer Khan Janjua had passed on the intelligence warning to his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval on Saturday following which the special forces were deployed to Gujarat to back up state police.
The terror alert prompted massive mobilisation of state police personnel and the National Security Guard.
Security was beefed up at prominent temples, markets, railway stations, bus stands, malls, airports and other crowded places across cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Vijayawada, Bhopal and Chandigarh.
