Mahrajganj (UP): The SSB on Wednesday said it has stepped up vigil along the Indo-Nepal border in Uttar Pradesh to prevent possible infiltration of terrorists in the wake of the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan by US forces.

"We have stepped up vigil in Gonda, Gorakhpur and Basti division. SSB forces in Mahrajganj, Siddharthanagar, Balrampur and Shrawasti districts, sharing border with Nepal, have been put on high alert," SSB DIG Samir Kermaker said.

Security personnel have been asked to ascertain the identities of people before allowing them to cross the border, he said

Patrolling of public spots such as cinema halls, hotels, rail and bus stations are being done and people have been appealed to inform SSB and police about any suspicious person or activity seen on border areas, Kermaker said.
