Security agencies have been put on high alert in Bathinda and Ferozepur districts of Punjab today following intelligence reports that Kashmiri terrorist Zakir Musa could be hiding in the area.
The intelligence reports have suggested that Musa could be disguised as a Sikh and wearing a turban. He is the Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind chief and is said to be aligned with a global terror group. Army troopers, Punjab Police and other para-military were stationed in and around important places like the Bathinda railway station and checking was being carried out since early today. Security agencies have put up posters carrying photographs of Musa, including one of him disguised as a Sikh, at various places to make the public aware in both districts.
