SRINAGAR: Pakistan has shared input about a possible 'IED attack' on a highway in south Kashmir with NSA, according to Intelligence sources.

According to a security official based in Srinagar, the information is regarding a possible IED attack in Pulwama near Awantipora.

Following the input, all security agencies in the valley are said to be put on alert, which has come just days after Anantnag suicide terror attack.

The official said that Pakistan has shared this input of a possible 'IED attack' with India's High Commission in Islamabad and also with the United States. Therefore, both Pakistan and US have alerted India about a possible attack.

Going by reports, Pakistan has said that the attack is to avenge the killing of Zakir Musa, who was an al-Qaeda affiliate.

After this input of possible terror attack received to the NSA, the security grid is on double alert since a suicide attack was carried out in Anantnag earlier this week and because of the Amarnath Yatra which is going to start soon.
