ISLAMABAD: Security in Islamabad was put on high alert after the Interior Ministry received a report from intelligence agencies warning that there is a fear of a bomb attack in the federal capital, Express News reported on Monday.

The intelligence agencies’ report said that the bomb can be a remote-controlled attack or a suicide attack.

After receiving the report, the interior minister ordered the Rangers, police, FC and other law enforcement agencies to stay on high alert. The minister ordered that aerial monitoring be done during Difa-e-Pakistan Council’s (DPC) long march in the capital.

Hidden cameras will also monitor the security situation.

    Why not have High Security throughout the Country, as its obvious that there is no security in any part of the country, and the people deserve better from its Army and Govt !

    “long march” towards Islamabad early in the morning after a night’s rest in Gujarat. Earlier, thousands of people joined a convoy of buses, trucks and cars, many carrying the black and white striped flags of the DPC, on the 275-kilometre (170-mile) journey from Lahore to Islamabad.

    @Hedgefunder: Perhaps you should ask yourself why you Indians have been terrorizing people in Kashmir for over 60 years and use Afghanistan as a base to send criminals to Pakistan instead of criticizing the Pak security forces who are battling your agents who outnumber Pakistanis 10 to 1.
