New Delhi: The government Tuesday said it has
received specific inputs about possible attacks by Maoists and
other terrorists on some political leaders and VVIPs.

"Government receives threat inputs and assessment from
central security agencies regarding possible attacks by
terrorists including Maoists on some political leaders and
VVIPs," Minister of State for Home Affairs M Ramachandran told
Lok Sabha in a written reply.

Security arrangements for all such leaders and VVIPs are
reviewed and adequately strengthened in the light of specific
threat inputs received from central security agencies.

Such inputs are also shared with state governments and
Union Territory administrations concerned for providing
appropriate security to the leaders or VVIPs, he said.

The government, however, did not disclose names of the
VVIPs or political leaders who are on the radar of the Maoists
or terrorists and whose security has been overhauled or
enhanced.
