Lahore, June 20 (ANI): The Lahore Commissioner, Khusro Pervaiz, has warned that the militants could target some strategically important buildings in the city.

Pervaiz said that the terrorists are on the look out for the right opportunity to carry out terror strikes on the offices of law-enforcement agencies and top hotels located here.

According to The Daily Times, the Lahore CCPO, Pervaiz Rathore, in his letter to Pervaiz, has warned that militants may trigger attacks more powerful and devastating than those that have occurred in the recent past.

The militants could target important buildings such as the IB headquarters, Central Police Office, Special Branch offices, CID offices, Police Investigation Headquarters, NADRA and passport offices, Rathore feared.

Following the increased threat perception, Lahore police have been asked to beef up security at the Pearl Continental and Avari hotels, as they are also in the terror hit-list. (ANI)
