NEW DELHI: The Indian intelligence establishment has been alerted about Pakistan-based groups floating a new tanzeem (terror organisation) that would claim responsibility for future attacks on security forces, their sources, mediapersons seen close to the government, non-locals in the Valley, Kashmiri Pandits, ruling party politicians, and industrialists, intelligence sources said.

A hit list of 200 entities and their vehicle details has been prepared by ISI-backed groups, the intelligence suggests.

The input reveals that a meeting of the ISI brass with heads of various tanzeems took place in the last week of September in Muzaffarabad, Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

An intelligence note seen by TOI mentions that it was decided at this meeting that this new frontal organisation would not only claim future targeted killings but also attract resources, manpower and network infrastructure.

Last year, the ISI had floated a front organisation for LeT called The Resistance Front (TRF), which now claims the majority of the attacks in the Kashmir Valley.

The latest alert suggests that attempts at targeted killings will continue in the “noncampaigning season” as well.

Also on the target in the Valley are non-locals connected with RSS and BJP.The killings would be possibly carried out by nonlisted cadres and overground workers to project it as a spontaneous and totally indigenous activity,” the intel alert reads.

It adds that the weapons (small arms) and explosives (hand grenades) required for the killings are being smuggled across the LoC in Uri and Tangdhar sectors. The alert advises all police forces and security units in and outside the Valley to take necessary precautions.
