Security agencies were put on high alert in Assam following intelligence inputs that Pakistan's ISI along with al-Qaeda are purportedly planning a major strike at the famous Kamakhya temple and other religious places.

Intelligence sources told PTI in Guwahati on Sunday that ISI along with al-Qaeda are planning to hit religious places in the state, including the world famous Kamakhya temple, atop the Neelachal hills in the city in Guwahati.

The ISI had planned these attacks after the bombing inside a mosque in Pakistan on December 21, sources said. There is a general high alert in the state under the direction of the Union Home Ministry following the mosque blast in Pakistan.
