Pakistan-based terror groups Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) are preparing for large scale terror strikes in India during the winter months, Hindustan Times reported citing intel reports.

Intelligence agencies say that JeM has asked its trained terrorists to report at its Markaz Usman-o-Ali headquarters in Bahawalpur city, located in the Punjab province of Pakistan, where both Jaish chief Masood Azhar and his younger brother Mufti Abdul Rauf Asghar are currently lodged.

LeT chief Hafiz Saeed, Makki, Zafar Iqbal (head of education wing), Yahya Aziz (spokesperson), finance heads Haji Ashraf and Mohammed Bhutvi have been under house arrest or detention at the Qadsia mosque in Lahore.

Citing another intel input, the report said that LeT commander Abu Uzmail has announced that India would soon face a fidayeen attack.

Indian security agencies have said that in the last three months there has been little or no infiltration in Sialkot but there was possible movement of 20 Jaish cadres led by seven Afghan commanders across the border.
