US Warns Its Citizens Of ISIS Attack In India, Issues An Advisory

11:50 am 2 Nov, 2016


The United States of America on November 2 asked US citizens traveling or living in India to keep a high level of vigilance as they have received reports indicating that terror group ISIS is planning to attack “targets” in India.

They believe these “targets” to be western foreigners that are in India or traveling to India and have thus issued an Advisory warning them of the same.

The advisory, which was issued by the American Embassy in New Delhi on November 2, not only warns its citizens of an increased threat but also suspects that the terrorist organization will target places which are frequented by Westerners in India.

The advisory said:

“Recent Indian media reports indicate ISIS’s desire to attack targets in India. The US Embassy warns of an increased threat to places in India frequented by Westerners, such as religious sites, markets, and festival venues. All US citizens are reminded to maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to increase their security awareness as detailed in the State Department’s Worldwide Caution of September 9, 2016.”
