National Security Adviser of Pakistan Naseer Khan Janjua’s inputs over alleged infiltration of terrorists were correct, reported the Hindu citing home ministry officials.
Investigators were not in a position to share any further information about the three killed terrorists until their verification process was completed, said an official.
He also said that the terrorists planned to strike at the famous Somnath temple on the coast of Gujarat, ahead of Maha Shivratri celebrations last week.
“There are seven more, whom we have to track. The terrorists could belong to a third country as well,” added the official.
Mr Janjua had tipped off his counterpart Ajit Doval, reportedly saying that Pakistan had information about half a dozen terrorists, belonging to either Lashkar-e-Taiba or Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), The Hindu said.
