According to sources, security forces in Jammu and Kashmir altered the schedule of the G20 Tourism Working Group (TWG) conference at the last minute for security reasons after suspecting that terrorist groups planned to carry out a similar attack to the one that occurred during the G20 summit in Gulmarg at the direction of Pakistan's ISI.
The adjustments were made in response to information provided by an over-ground worker (OGW) who worked in an exclusive hotel while jailed. Additionally, security has been tightened up around the G20 location. In the meantime, the Kashmir Police issued a warning to the public about suspicious foreign mobile numbers that were reportedly being used to propagate disinformation about the G20 summit taking place in the Valley.
OGW are those who provide the infrastructure needed for armed organisations and insurgent movements like Hizb-ul-Mujahideen and Jaish-e-Muhammad in Jammu and Kashmir to function, such as logistical support, money, shelter, and other resources.
As part of a crackdown in advance of the G-20, security forces detained Farooq Ahmad Wani in the final week of April.
Wani, a native of Haigam Sopore in Baramulla, had worked as a driver at a well-known five-star hotel in Gulmarg. He was connected to terror groups as an OGW, and he had direct touch with ISI officers on the other side of the border, according to reports.
