Chandigarh: The government has taken serious note of "possible threats" to certain railway stations and adequate security arrangements have been made there, Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal said Sunday.

"The government has taken a serious note of possible threats to certain railway stations and these have been put on high alert," Bansal said.

He was responding to reports that five railway stations -- Delhi, Mumbai, Chandigarh, Pratapgarh and Mirzapur -- were recced by two alleged LeT operatives.

The minister said security has been intensified at railway stations to thwart the designs of terrorist organisations.
