Terrorists are planning attacks on the worship places of minorities in several Pakistan's cities like Lahore, Muzzaffargarh and Chakwal, local media reported Wednesday citing intelligence agencies' report.

According the intelligence agency's report, an unknown terrorist group "Munsa" was planning to attack offices of sensitive agencies, government buildings, army garrisons and checkposts in Lahore, the second largest city of Pakistan.

After receiving these threats, the law enforcement agencies have been directed to remain at high alert, local newspaper Daily Times reported.

The intelligence agencies have also directed security personnel to adopt all necessary preventive measures and make foolproof security arrangements for protecting the above-mentioned sensitive targets to avoid any untoward incident.

After the recent terrorist attacks in Lahore, Sargodha and Faisalabad in the eastern province of Punjab, which left more than 100 people dead, the Punjab Home Department has directed the law enforcement agencies to ensure foolproof security measures of mosques, imambargahs, shrines and worship places of minorities in the province, police sources said.
