Police have been put on a high alert after intelligence inputs from Jammu and Kashmir that some militants were trying to sneak into Punjab through road.

Confirming the intelligence inputs provided by the J&K Police, Pathankot SSP Rakesh Kaushal said checking has been intensified at Madhopur and Kathlore, the Punjab-J&K border points.

He said the input was not specific and there was no information about type of the vehicle the militants may be using or their number. “Still we cannot take the input lightly, so, we have strengthened the security on our side. We will frisk every vehicle coming from J&K,” he said.
