Intelligence agencies have sounded an alert and warned police personnel as well as security agencies in Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab, Haryana and Delhi to keep a watch out for a grey sedan bearing a J&K registration plate, which, they fear, is packed with explosives and a suicide belt.

The car, a Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire, has three fully-armed terrorists and a local person, and is expected to pass through the Banihal Tunnel in J&K on Wednesday night, reported NDTV.

According to The Indian Express, security establishments have been put on high alert all along the route from the Banihal tunnel to New Delhi and surprise checks are being conducted on suspected vehicles.

On 2 January, terrorists had attacked the Pathankot Air Force Station, part of the Western Air Command of the Indian Air Force. Four terrorists were killed and two security personnel lost their lives in the gun battle.

However, the Pakistani Joint Investigation Team, which came to India to probe the Pathankot attack, claimed that Indian authorities 'failed' to provide evidence to prove that Pakistan-based terrorists had stormed the IAF base.

The team from Pakistan said that the attack was a drama "staged" by India to malign Pakistan.
