According to the reports, terrorist Zakir Moosa was spotted in Amritsar along with a few other men.
The latest development comes after intelligence agencies informed the police about his movements in the state.
“We had inputs about Zakir Moosa’s movements near Amritsar. Therefore, we have released wanted posters of him to make public aware and have requested them to tell us if they have any information,” said police officer.
Moosa, one of the most wanted terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir had reportedly joined Al-Qaeda after a fallout with Hizbul Mujahideen.
The state has been put on high alert after the intelligence agencies had issued a letter to Punjab police about the presence of at least six terrorists belonging to Pakistan-based Militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM). The terrorists were believed to be sighted in Ferozepur.
“We had inputs that some JeM terrorists have infiltrated in Punjab through Ferozepur, so we have taken precautionary measures. Extra forces have been deployed along the border. Checking of vehicles is underway,” the officer said.
