India are all set to take on Bangladesh for a T20I and Test series. But ahead of the series there are couple of things which has made the headlines – be it Bangladesh players’ strike, Shakib Al Hasan’s ban or India captain Virat Kohli is on the terrr attack’s hitlist. However, Pakistan has reportedly launched a new terror outfit to attack in India.
Government sources informed that All India Lashkar-e-Taiba, which many knew as the existing infamous Lashkar-e-Taiba. Sources even said Indian intelligence agencies received a ‘hitlist’ in their office of the National Investigation Agency recently. Sources said that the ‘hitlist’ includes Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President Ram Nath Kovind, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, BJP patriarch LK Advani, Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli.
However, the Delhi Police has been informed about the incident and they were asked to tighten up their security for the upcoming series as the opening game is set to be played at the Arun Jaitley stadium (formerly Feroz Shah Kotla stadium) on Sunday.
According to Time Now, although India captain Virat Kohli and the politicians are under the threat, Virat Kohli is not the part of the series and Rohit Sharma will lead the side. However, this letter could be a hoax too like the previous one during India’s West Indies tour earlier this year. But no risk is being taken with security and as per the news, the whole stadium will be reviewed ahead of the match.
As far as the tour is concerned, Bangladesh will travel to India on Wednesday. Although the series was in doubt as the players went on a strike because their demands didn’t fulfil by the board. However, they called off the strike later as the board promised to fulfill them which included the pay hike. But their star all-rounder Shakib Al hasan has been banned for two years and BCB is expected to announce the Test squad later in the week.
