Pathankot SSP Rakesh Kaushal told HT that a call was intercepted on Friday in which a person, possibly using a satellite phone, was heard saying “come to Pathankot or Dinanagar. After that we will discuss the plans”.

Information regarding the call was shared with the Punjab Police by its counterparts in Jammu and Kashmir.

Police and BSF are conducting a massive checking in both cities.

While terrorists had attacked the Indian Air Force base at Pathankot on the intervening night of January 1-2, Dinanagar in Gurdaspur came under attack on July 27, 2015.

Seven security force personnel were martyred in the Pathankot attack and four terrorists were killed. In Dinanagar, seven people including an SP died at the hands of three terrorists, who were later gunned down.

“We are not taking any chances. Security has been tightened in the border areas of Gurdaspur, Pathankot and Batala,” said a police officer posted in Gurdaspur on Saturday.
