Jaipur: Security was stepped up at the Rajasthan Assembly building after the secretariat received a postcard threatening to blow it up during its winter session, police said.

"Bomb Disposal Squad and Anti-Sabotage team were rushed to the spot immediately after the Assembly officials informed us about the letter. So far, no objectionable object or explosive has been detected and further search is on in the Assembly building premises," Jaipur Range IG IBL Soni said.

"According to the postcard, the building will be blown up with RDX during the winter session," he said quoting the letter.

The letter, addressed to the Speaker, was received yesterday by the Assembly secretariat.

SP Jaipur (South) Jose Mohan said that security has been tightened up in and around the building and extra security arrangements will be in place during the Session.

"We have started investigation into the matter and trying to trace the sender," he said.
