Jaish-e-Mohammed might target Mumbai according to Intelligence agencies

After India revoked Article 370, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan downgraded diplomatic ties, suspended trade with India claiming that this move could trigger "Pulwama-like-incidents and a controversial Indo-Pak war".

In its assessment on the remarks made by Pakistan PM Imran Khan, the Intelligence agencies informed the Indian government that Pakistan-based terrorist outfit, Jaish-e-Mohammed may plan to attack security forces deployed in Jammu and Kashmir and economic targets in cities such as Mumbai.

The intelligence agencies maintained that Khan's remarks are being seen as an indication of Pakistan attempting to support its terror group. 

As per media reports, a senior security official informed that Rauf Asghar, the younger brother of Jaish chief Maulana Masood Azhar, had moved to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (POK) after meetings in Rawalpindi.
