New Delhi: A high alert was issued in the national capital on Sunday, January 24 after a car with an `Indian Army` sticker was stolen from the Lodhi Garden here. This comes after an intelligence report spoke about a possible ISIS strike during the Republic Day celebrations.

According to media reports, the car which carried a sticker that indicates that it belongs to a personnel from the Army Hospital (Research and Referral) bears the registration number HR 51T 6646.

An alert has been issued and security agencies are working to retrieve the vehicle and avoid untoward incidents.

The recent incident comes days after the Pathankot terror attack which had a similar pattern, as the terrorists has used the car they had stolen from Gurdaspur SP
Salwinder Singh after kidnapping him and used it to enter the Air Force Base where they opened fire.

Earlier media reports have said that the recently busted pan-India terror module was in “constant touch” with people perceived to be close to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the feared leader of the Islamic State, receiving instructions for carrying out explosions at important places ahead of the Republic day.

The NIA and other central security agencies arrested 14 people on Friday and Saturday for allegedly planning to carry out attacks ahead of Republic Day.

Those arrested included Mudabbir Mushtaq Shaikh, the self-styled ‘Ameer’ of ‘Janood-ul-Khalifa-e-Hind’ (Army of Caliph of India), the Indian wing of ISIS.

Official sources said that he was the man behind raising the outfit after earlier attempts by the global terror organisation to set up its base in the sub-continent failed.
