    ISLAMABAD: Pakistani intelligence agencies have warned Lahore police about a possible terrorist attack on visiting Sikh pilgrims by elements who want to sabotage Indo-Pak peace talks. The pilgrims will be in Lahore from June 27 to 31.

    According to intelligence inputs shared with the Punjab home department and the federal ministry of interior, “terrorists could target Sikh pilgrims on the days they are in Pakistani Punjab to perform rituals”.

    Over 200 Sikh pilgrims have reached Lahore from India, the US, UK and Canada after visiting Nankana Sahib and other parts of Punjab, regarded the cultural capital of Pakistan. The pilgrims will stay in Pakistan till June 30 to observe the 171st death anniversary of Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

    Sources said the intelligence report in question has been addressed to the Lahore capital police officer, deputy inspector general of police (Sheikhupura district) and the corps commander of Lahore.

    It reads: “Reportedly, after carrying out bloody attacks on worship places of the Ahmedi community in Lahore on May 28, which killed almost 100 people, terrorists have planned to target Christians and other minority communities in Punjab, particularly Lahore.

    Terrorists may target/take hostage minority believers during prayers at worship places to create a new wave of terror and disrupt the administrative machinery.
