No "specific" terror alert in Goa: Kamat
Panaji: Goa Chief Minister Digambar Kamat Friday said no specific `alert` has been issued in the state following the latest serial blasts in Mumbai.
"We are always on alert. Goa is an international tourist destination so we cannot take chance. Whether something happens in the neighbouring state or not, Goa has to be on alert," Kamat told reporters here.
Few hours after Mumbai blasts, Goa police had claimed that the state was on red alert.
Police had intensified its presence at crowded places like bus stands, railway stations and markets. All the vehicles entering and leaving the state were also thoroughly checked.
