" After reaching Ramban, the driver was told leave the vehicle and it was hijacked by its passengers at gun point, a police source told IANS."
Jammu, Aug 13 - An alert was sounded in Jammu and Kashmir Wednesday, a day after suspected militants hijacked a car on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway in Ramban district.

Police sources said a taxi was hired by two people for Srinagar from Pathankot city in Punjab Tuesday.

But late Tuesday, a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) patrol party found the driver of the car tied to a tree at a secluded place in Ramban district.

The driver said he was hired by two people from Pathankot and two more people joined them in Jammu.

After reaching Ramban, the driver was told leave the vehicle and it was hijacked by its passengers at gun point, a police source told IANS.

Consequently, a high alert has been sounded across the state as police fear the hijacked car could be used by militants for subversive activities around Independence Day Aug 15.
