Centre alerts metros on possible terror design
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Oct 14: In the wake of the RDX haul in Haryana, the Centre has advised authorities in four metros besides Hyderabad and Bangalore to remain on high alert as terrorists may try to strike during the festival season.
Acting on intelligence inputs, the Centre asked authorities in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad and Bangalore to remain on high alert to foil any possible terrorist design to attack the cities in the run up to and during Diwali and other festivals, sources said today.
The Centre asked the police chiefs of these cities to intensify vigil and deploy additional forces in all sensitive locations, religious places, markets, airports, railway stations, bus terminals and other crowded places to ensure peace.
Over 5 kg of RDX was recovered from a car outside Ambala Cantonment railway station on Wednesday night by police which claimed that it succeeded in foiling a terror strike, possibly in Delhi ahead of Diwali.
The explosives were recovered following inputs provided by intelligence agencies ten days ago that a consignment of such material is headed to a north Indian metro.
