Afghanistan reveals terrorist plot for PM Narendra Modi’s Christmas visit

Afghanistan’s intelligence service, the National Directorate of Security, has prevented a suicide-bomb assault on India’s consulate in the eastern city of Jalalabad, along the border with Pakistan, government sources told The Indian Express.
The strike was to have taken place as Prime Minister Narendra Modi visits the Afghan capital for the first time on December 25, sources said.
Indian intelligence sources said NDS had identified the attacker as Qari Nasir, a religious studies student from Tagab district in the north-eastern province of Kapisa. In statements given to Afghan authorities, Nasir is alleged to have said he was trained in a camp across the border in Pakistan, and received final instructions at a Taliban facility in Peshawar.
