Tehreek-e-Taliban-linked militant group Jamaat-ul-Ahrar(TTP-JA), who claimed responsibility over Sunday's Wagah border suicide attack, has hinted on Wednesday (5 November) that Indian targets might be next.
TTP-JA's spokesperson and a prominent militant Ehsanullah Ehsan, said he has warned Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi that attacks in India could soon be in the pipeline.
"I have already conveyed it to Modi ... that if our suicide bombers can carry out attacks on this side of the border, they can easily do it on other side of the border in India. I told him that his hands are red with the blood of Kashmiri mujahideen (fighters) and innocent people of Gujarat for which he would have to pay the price," Ehsan told Reuters from an undisclosed location.
At least 61 people were killed on 2 November when a suicide bomber carried out an attack at the Wagah border.
"We have proudly stated that our target was the security forces and their installations in which we succeeded," Ehsan told Reuters.
The attack is the revenge of those innocent people who have been killed by Pak Army particularly those killed in North Waziristan.

Ehsan says Jamaat-ul-Ahrar's focus is aimed at countries around the region, while TTP is narrowing focusing on war in the tribal areas on the Afghan border.
"The TTP focuses on Pakistan only, while we have a global agenda of jihad and therefore we have people from all over the world including the Arab and Western world for this mission."
Quite recently, Al-Qaeda's chief Ayman al-Zawahiri had announced that the global extremist miltant group is launching a new sub-continent branch to merge the 'artificial borders' that are presently dividing Muslim populations in the region.
"This entity was not established today, but is the fruit of a blessed effort of more than two years to gather the mujahedeen in the sub-continent into a single entity," said al-Zawahiri, Dawn News reported.
Al-Qaeda's chief had promised to take the fight to India.
