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
