Mumbai: Maharashtra Police have received inputs from central intelligence agencies about possibility of terror attacks on luxury buses plying between Mumbai and Ahmedabad and steps have been taken to foil any such bid.

"There are various intelligence inputs about possible terror strikes in the state. One of them is that the luxury buses running between Mumbai and Ahmedabad could be targeted. We have asked all the bus owners to be extra alert," a top state police officer told PTI on condition of anonymity.
The officer said that the identity of passengers were being ascertained and their luggage thoroughly checked to the extent possible.

Even the normal buses and other vehicles plying on the route were being randomly checked, he said.
Recently, there was an input from the central intelligence agencies that the terrorists may target Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport using small aircraft following which security there was tightened.
