From the Daily Mail:

Police in India have issued a terror alert warning three jihadis may have entered the country just days ahead of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s official visit.

The warning said the terrorists armed with guns, ammunition and a suicide belt could target Delhi, Goa and Mumbai – the city where the couple will begin their tour.

According to reports in India, the three terrorists are suspected to have entered the country via the Punjab region which borders Pakistan.

India has been targeted by terrorists before, most notably in 2008, when gunmen spent four days killing 164 people in a series of coordinated attacks across Mumbai.

The alert issued by Punjab police stated: ‘Their target could be in Delhi, Goa and Mumbai,’ India Today reported.

‘You are directed to take all the necessary steps in this regard and specially focus on strict checking of vehicles, security of all vital installation[s] including police buildings and defence establishments, religious places, crowded places such as market areas, malls, railway stations, railway tracks, and educational institutions.’

According to reports, the three Pakistani terrorists are travelling in a Maruti Swift Dzire car with the license plate JK-01 AB-2654, and a local from the Punjab region is thought to be with them.

… In a press release to mark the details of their trip, a spokesperson last month said the trip would begin with a trip to the Taj Palace Hotel..

The spokesperson added: ‘The Taj was one of the scenes of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai in November 2008 and is now an iconic symbol of the city’s resilience and strength.

‘The stories of the bravery and dedication of the staff there are now known around the world.

‘The Duke and Duchess are following in the footsteps of other world figures, including The Prince of Wales and the US President who have both used their stays at the hotel to display solidarity with the people of this great city.

‘On arrival they will lay a wreath at a memorial inside the hotel and meet members of staff who helped protect guests during the attack.’

Hopefully, these jihadis will be captured before they’re able to unleash their terrorist plot. And thank goodness there was advance warning — it may have saved countless lives.
