Kabul bomb attacks put security agencies in India on high alert

New Delhi: A day after two deadly suicide blasts that rocked Kabul leading to multiple casualties, several reports suggest that the security agencies have been put on high alert, apprehending terror threats over India.

A senior official in the security set-up said that though security forces are on high alert and have raised extra-vigil on the western and northern borders with Pakistan, the Kabul blasts on Thursday have raised a security concern for the country.

He also added that additional steps have been taken in view of the Taliban and now the IS-KP.

A former research associate of Manohar Parrikar Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses (MPIDSA) and teacher of International Relation in Delhi University Prof Sanjeev Srivastava also opined that the entry of IS-KP in Afghanistan was an alarm bell for Indian agencies which needed to revisit the strategies in view of the changed scenario.

"Though both ultra outfits were against each other in the past and its entry into the war-ravaged country is not a good sign for India. The Narendra Modi government has adopted zero-tolerance against terrorism but we need to be on highest alert," Srivastava said.

Reacting to the IS-KP entry to Afghanistan, the former diplomat Vishnu Prakash said that any rival of Taliban, whether it is ISIS, ISKP or any kind of extremist organization of Afghanistan is an additional threat to India, but he assured that the country is quite capable of handling them.
