Security stepped up in Gujarat after inputs of terror threat
Ahmedabad: Security in Gujarat has been
beefed up following an alert issued by the central
intelligence agencies about possible terror strike in the
state, police officials said.
"An anonymous letter has been received by intelligence
agencies. The letter which threatens of a bomb blast in
Gujarat on May 25, has been shared with us by the intelligence
agencies of the central government," ADGP (law and order)
Sudhir Sinha said.
"Security has been beefed up at all the sensitive
points in the state. Routine drills, in the wake of such
potential strike threat, are being carried out and checking of
vehicles has begun," he said.
Gujarat, which has been clocking double digit growth, has
been high on the agenda of terror groups trying to create
disturbance in the state.
"Vigilance at places like railway stations, dharmashalas,
hotels and bus stops in Ahmedabad has been intensified,
following an advisory from a central intelligence agency,"
Commissioner of Police Amitabh Pathak said.
"There is nothing to panic about as such and we shall
take care of it," he said.
