Indian Army warns of terror attacks ahead of Obama’s visit

Swing states of Colorado, New Hampshire, and Virginia, all of which trended toward Romney after the first debate, are now more likely to go to Obama.

The Indian Army on Thursday warned of terror attacks ahead of U.S. President Barack Obama’s visit later in January.

The Commander of Indian Army’s 16 Corps, K.H. Singh, a lieutenant-genera​​l told journalists in New Delhi. “There are rumours that terrorists might try to attack soft targets, including schools and civilian areas ahead of the U.S. president’s visit,” Mr. Singh said.

“Indian Army camps and important highways are also on their radar. Nearly 200 militants in 36 launch pads across the Pir Panjal Range are waiting to infiltrate into India. However, our counter- infiltration posture is firmly in place and infiltration bids will be eliminated.”

He added that the Indian Army was prepared all the time for any eventuality.

President Obama would arrive in India on January 25 on a three-day tour, during which he would be the chief guest in the Republic Day celebrations.
