the ATS, are all prepared to thwart terrorists designs.
"A number of cities, including Indore, Ratlam, Ujjain and
Bhopal are on the radar of terrorists," he said.
Beat constables would be provided the mobiles so that
SMS could be sent to them as alert, Raut said.

"e-challan" in Bhopal and Indore in the first phase.
Police vehicles fitted with GPRS, surveillance camera,
