Security agencies in Pathankot district are on high alert after a black colour Alto car was found under mysterious circumstances in Pathankot’s Bamiyal sector late on Wednesday night.

SSP Pathankot Rakesh Kaushal told HT that some villagers spotted the car with a Jammu and Kashmir numberplate.

The people travelling in the vehicle fled the spot when locals tried to stop them. The same car was later found in Farwal village which is near India-Pakistan International Border.

We have cordoned off the area and will open the car after thorough checking, the SSP said.
