The Punjab Police issued a terror alert Wednesday, warning that Pakistani terrorists were likely to target Indian cities such as Delhi and Mumbai, as per reports. 

The police said three Pakistani terrorists were travelling in a car from Jammu and Kashmir and were armed with explosives, according to NDTV.  The police not described the car as a Swift Dzire with license plate JK-01 AB-2654, and said the vehicle was likely to pass through the Banihal Tunnel in Jammu and Kashmir later Wednesday. 

Punjab has witnessed two terror attacks in recent months. Terrorists attacked the Gurdaspur police station in July last year, killing seven people, while the Pathankot airforce base came under attack in January.  

The terror alert comes days after Pakistani media reports cited Pakistani investigators claiming India had "staged" the Jan. 2 Pathankot terror attack and saying there was no evidence to prove the terrorists had come from Pakistan.
