Srinagar: A high alert was sounded along the Jammu-Punjab border after four people stole a sports utility vehicle and fled with it. This incident has made the security establishment anxious especially after the encounter in the Akhnoor on Tuesday in which a terrorist was killed, and reports of some terrorists having slipped into Indian territory.   

The security agencies have gone into an overdrive to track down the suspects, before they could possibly trigger an attack.
