Gilgit, March 5: GB Home Secretary, Faisal Zahoor, has reportedly told a group of newsmen that terrorists might try to attack targets in Skardu, Gilgit city and Danyore, on the pattern of Quetta and Abbas Town-Karachi bomb blasts.

He has reportedly said that elaborate security measures have been taken to counter the threat of terrorism.

Giving details about the ‘security measures’, the home secretary has said that Afghan migrants living in Gilgit city and those without CNIC would be expelled from the region.

Expressing the fear that heavy vehicles might be used in a possible attack, the home secretary has said that a strict time schedule has been developed for trucks to enter and leave the cities in Gilgit and Skardu. This, he has told the media, would enable stricter monitoring of the vehicles.

The home secretary has, reportedly, also said that a number of counter-terrorism teams and units have been formed to respond to any eventuality.  Choppers of the Pakistan Army have also been made available for security, he said.
