India-Pakistan Cricket World Cup match in New York, Islamic State gives a big threat


New York. The terrorist organization Islamic State has issued a threat against the World Cup cricket match between India and Pakistan to be held in New York next month. After this, security has been increased here. New York Governor Kathy Hochul said that she has instructed the New York Police to increase security, which includes increasing the presence of law enforcement, surveillance and intensive investigation process. Bruce Blakeman, the chief of Nassau County, located on the border of New York City, said that we are ready to face every situation. We are taking all precautions.

He said that we take every threat seriously. There is a single process for every threat. We never underestimate threats. We explore all our clues. The Islamic State terrorist organization is known as ISIS. It posted a picture of a cricket stadium on a British chat site, with drones flying over it, on which the date of the India-Pakistan match was written as 9/06/2024. A screenshot of the post was broadcast on a news report by NBC New York TV.

New York officials did not pay much attention to the ISIS post and downplayed it. However, they said that they are monitoring the situation. Security measures are being increased and resources are being mobilized for any situation. Hochul said that although there is no public safety threat at this time, we will continue to monitor the situation closely. He said that my administration has been working with federal law enforcement and Nassau County for months to ensure that the people of New York and those who visit here remain safe.
