Last Updated: Monday, May 2, 2011 - 19:28

New Delhi: In the wake of the killing of al
Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden on Monday, the Centre has asked
all states to tighten security particularly in places wherever
there is an American or a Jewish installation.

In its advisory, the Home Ministry asked authorities in
Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad and Kolkata to beef up security
around the US consulates there and foil any attempt by anyone
to disturb peace there.

Security was also strengthened around the US Embassy and
nearby areas in the national capital`s diplomatic enclave,
sources said.

All states have also been asked to step up security if
any Chabad houses is located there as these are hubs of Jewish
travellers. The states have also been asked to keep strict
vigil on tourist destinations where foreign travellers
regularly.

The United States has issued a worldwide travel alert for
its citizens, especially those living in Pakistan, soon after
President Barack Obama announced that bin Laden has been
killed.
