‘Someone among cops may have been honey-trapped’
When the security is already beefed up ahead of Independence Day celebrations, the intelligence agencies have received a shocking input that the security personnel deployed to ensure the safety in the city could have been honey-trapped or the suspect might join the force by wearing identical uniform, sources said.
A high-level meeting was conducted by the Intelligence Bureau and the top honchos of Delhi Police at the Police Headquarters on Wednesday afternoon. Revealing some information about the meeting, a source in the intelligence agency said: “Recently, an information has been received that the terror outfits who are planning a strike on August 15 have honey-trapped someone in the security forces to get an easy entry in order to execute the terror strike.”
The source further added that there is also a possibility that the operatives of the terror outfits will try to join the force by wearing identical uniform. To avert this plan, the security agencies are planning to use a unique code word and other preventive measures to identify between the real policemen and the forged ones.
“The finger-prints of all the forces have already been recorded and on the day of the final arrangements, only those cops will be allowed whose finger-prints will match from the pre-recorded data,” another source in one of the security agency added.
Meanwhile, a special team has been formed this week who are keeping a tight vigil on their own police personnel and their social networking sites. Also, the phones have been kept on the surveillance and the call details have been put under the radar. Also, regular counselling sessions of all the armed forces are being conducted.
According to another input received by the intelligence agencies, apart from targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, his convoys and camps of the Indian Army and other security forces are also the target of the terror outfit.
As the intensity of the terror threats are increasing, Delhi Police might use air-defence gun which is to be deployed at the fort on August 15. Like each year, Delhi would turn into a no-fly zone and fighter jets of the Indian Air Force would be on standby to deal with any emergency.
