India's National Security Advisor M K Narayanan says Indian intelligence has warned New Delhi that a Pakistan-based Islamic rebel group could target its nuclear installations.
Narayanan described the threat as very serious and identified Lashker-e-Toiba as the group planning the strike. He told CNN-IBN news channel there is information that one of India's atomic energy installations could be the target. The Kashmiri separatist group is banned by both India and Pakistan.
India also has alleged that the Lashker group could be behind the recent Mumbai train bombings that left nearly 200 people dead. The group however has denied responsibility for the Mumbai blasts. New Delhi also blames the militant group for a deadly attack on its national parliament complex in December 2001 that brought India and Pakistan to the brink of their fourth war.
