Pune: Seven months after the German Bakery
bomb blast here, Pune police have announced formation of an
Anti-terrorism cell comprising 14 men including an inspector
who will be fully focused on monitoring terror activities in
the city.

This cell is in addition to the Special Operations
Wing (SOW) which is already functional on the terrorism front,
officials said.

According to ACP Anant Shinde, the cell will focus on
the "movements of suspicious persons" in the city and police
inspector Sunil Tambe who is heading the SOW will also be in
charge of the new squad.

The measure has been taken in view of the increased
terrorist activity in Pune region.

Meanwhile, police authorities have cracked the whip on
the mushrooming unlicensed cyber cafes in the city following
revelations that the German Bakery attack plan had been
hatched at a Cyber cafe in Udgir in Marathwada region.

The blast at the popular eatery in Koregaon Park here
killed 16 people and left over 60 injured on February 13.
