Security agencies have warned of terrorist attacks on August 5 and August 15
Bengaluru: As the nation gears up for bhumi puja in Ayodhya on August 5 and the Independence Day on August 15, security agencies have warned that terrorist attacks may take place.
Reports state that Intelligence agencies have compiled multiple information received in the last few weeks and concluded that they are not only planning attacks on 5th August but also on the 15th August, Independence Day.
Reports state that there is a possibility that five or six terrorists may enter via Nepal border. The security agencies said that the attacks might take place on August 5 in the light of the anniversary of abrogation of Article 370 and on August 15. The agencies added that an attack on the occasion of Ram Mandir Bhoomi Pujan could not be ruled out.
A note on abrogation
It was on August 5 last year that the Narendra Modi-led Union government had abrogated Article 370 that paved the way for the complete integration of Jammu and Kashmir with the rest of India.

After the Supreme Court ruled in favour of Hindus as regards the Ayodhya disputed land last November, a trust was formed to oversee the construction of the temple.
