India warns Sri Lanka two hours before attack

Indian intelligence forces warned the country's intelligence agency at least two hours before the horrific bombing in Sri Lanka. Quoting a source from the Indian government, the NDTV news reports said Sri Lanka was warned in advance of the attack. It is said in the report that Sri Lanka was warned on April 4 and 20 April for two days on the attack. Without mentioning anyone's name in the report, an official of the Indian intelligence agency and an officer in Sri Lanka's security forces has said that officials of the Indian intelligence agency contacted Sri Lankan officials with their rank and said they had a precautionary warning.

Another Sri Lankan security official said there was a warning earlier than an hour ago. Another official said that India warned of potential attacks on Saturday night before the attack.

However, Sri Lankan police chief Pujush Jayasundara had said that he would warn the country's top officials about 10 days before such an incident could happen. Although no warnings came in the end.

Liability IS IS
Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for the horrific terrorist attack in Sri Lanka. On Tuesday, the IS spokesman Amak was charged with assault. However, there is no evidence to support the claim of IS. The news agency Reuters reports confirmed the responsibility of the attack on IS. Earlier, the US intelligence agency claimed that there was a similar kind of attack on the type of attack in Sri Lanka.

On Tuesday morning, State Minister for Defense Ryan Bijewardene said that one bomb blast was carried out during the celebration of Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka to revenge the shooting of a Christchurch mosque in New Zealand. Two Islamic groups of Sri Lanka are associated with the attack, he said.

On Sunday, one bomb attack was carried out in three churches and three hotels while praying on Easter Sunday. Then there were two more attacks. In this attack 321 people were killed and more than 500 people were injured. Of these 38 foreigners are foreigners.
