Terror alert in metros after Ambala RDX haul
New Delhi: In the wake of the RDX haul in Haryana, the Centre has advised authorities in four metros
besides Hyderabad and Bangalore to remain on high alert as
terrorists may try to strike during the festival season.
Acting on intelligence inputs, the Centre asked
authorities in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad and
Bangalore to remain on high alert to foil any possible
terrorist design to attack the cities in the run up to and
during Diwali and other festivals, sources said Friday.
The Centre asked the police chiefs of these cities to
intensify vigil and deploy additional forces in all sensitive
locations, religious places, markets, airports, railway
stations, bus terminals and other crowded places to ensure
Over 5 kg of RDX was recovered from a car outside
Ambala Cantonment railway station on Wednesday night by police
which claimed that it succeeded in foiling a terror strike,
possibly in Delhi ahead of Diwali, plotted by terror outfits
Lashkar-e-Toiba and Babbar Khalsa.
The explosives were recovered following inputs provided
by intelligence agencies ten days ago that a consignment of
such material is headed to a north Indian metro.
