MANESAR (HARYANA), Oct 16 � NSG, the country�s elite counter-terror force, today warned that global terror outfits like the dreaded ISIS and al-Qaeda could join hands and launch a �multi-city multiple attack� in India, reports PTI.

The warning of a combined terror attack was sounded by National Security Guards (NSG) Director General JN Choudhury, who also called the 2008 Mumbai carnage that killed 166 people as just a �curtain raiser�. The NSG at the same time said it was fully prepared and would respond to whatever required and whenever required.

The NSG warning came a day after a top Army officer said that instance of waving of ISIS flags in Kashmir was a matter of concern and �deserves the highest attention of the security agencies� so that the youth in the Valley are prevented from being lured into the ranks of the jihadist organisation.

Choudhury said �it is more than a possibility� now that the global terror groups may find �allies� in similar organisations like Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, Jaish-e-Mohammad, Indian Mujahideen and Lashkar-e-Toiba which already have a presence and activity in India.

�Now that they (international terror outfits like al-Qaeda) have declared their intention of attacking India, they will obviously align with known groups that we have (active in the country). Whether it is Laskhar (Lashkar-e-Toiba), Jaish (Jaish-e-Mohammad), Harkat (Harkat-ul-Mujahideen) or IM (Indian Mujahideen).

�So the apprehension we have is that if they do have a combined kind of strategy or combined operations, we have to be prepared and be alert if a combined (terrorist) group takes action. Then there is a threat and possibility of a multi-city multiple attack. That is what we are preparing for and hence we are also working with anti-terrorist forces and state police forces (in this context),� the head of the �black cat� commandos told reporters.

He was speaking on the sidelines of the 30th Raising Day of the force that was set up in 1984 for special combat tasks.
