The Defence Ministry requests the public not to panic about the intelligence information of a purported terrorist attack which is currently circulating in the social media.

While issuing a statement the defence ministry said a letter sent by the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to the Defence Secretary regarding the disclosure of a purported terrorist attack that may be carried out on July 5 and 6, evoking ‘Black July’, was taken up into consideration based on unconfirmed information received through intelligence sources. 

These are unverified intelligence information and there is no ground information that would associate the occurrence of such a terrorist attack invoking the ‘Black July’, the Ministry said.

It further said that the ministry was informed that such an attack could be carried out by terrorist groups and anti- government groups may also incite violence to discredit and destabilize the government.

As maintaining public security and safety is of high priority, all measures will be taken to ensure a high degree of security while investigations will also be carried into the received intelligence alert.

Therefore, the Ministry requested the public not to panic and to carry on with their day to day work.

    The failed president and the entire govt has done a great job to discredit and destabilize them selves and anything they touch including the whole country. What's left to do? Ane Palayan ban!

    Of course the public need not panic, because MoD knows already that they were the ones that drafted this threat on paper as precursor for arresting innocent, peacefully demonstrating civilians

    "Unverified intelligent" information...how can that ever be intelligent !!

    The government and the country have already been ambly discredited and destabilized ! Why not a terrorist attack in west? What funny and ridiculous is the news. Please scrap the whole intelligence infrastructure and save some money to buy some fuel. There in no terrorist more harmful than the Government itself which has jeopardized the economy and thwarted all hopes of the whole of the country's population.

    They put the fear of Moses on the people and then say Moses was not even seen in the area. This is the way you plant a seed!
