Bhopal: Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Bhopal on Friday, his security apparatus has gone into a tizzy after it emerged that hundreds of calls were made from a particular number in Afghanistan to the city residents here.
Although there were hundreds of calls made to the city over the past few days, there was, however, one particular number that raised the alarm.
According to news18.com, one of the numbers was showing the caller’s identity as ‘Tererist’. The number from which the call came was 093729864241 while the country code for Afghanistan is +93.
PM Modi will arrive in Bhopal on Friday to inaugurate a war memorial in the city's Lal Parade Ground. He will also address the ex-servicemen.
The report said that nearly a thousand people have received calls from the number, including the family of a senior intelligence officer.
The Ministry of Home Affairs has issued an alert following the development.
Security officials are now trying to find out more details about the calls from the telecom companies.
However, the Madhya Pradesh ATS in a statement said that the calls have nothing to do with PM’s Bhopal visit.
