New Delhi: After the Boston marathon blasts which claimed three lives, the Intelligence Bureau (IB) has sent an advisory to the Indian government on conducting matches of the ongoing sixth season of Indian Premier League (IPL).
IB alert stated that Indian government should take some precautionary matter to protect the IPL matches from the possible terror attack from Indian Mujahideen (IM).
IB has especially cautioned cities like Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, Mumbai and Delhi.
Earlier on Monday, two explosions struck one of America`s top sporting events, killing at least three and wounding more than 100 as the Boston Marathon erupted in a maelstrom of blood, screams, smoke and panic.
As cities from New York to Los Angeles went on high alert, Americans with ever-vivid memories of the September 11, 2001 suicide airliner attacks automatically wondered if the country had been hit again by terrorists.
President Barack Obama went on national television to say it was not yet clear who was behind the blasts. He said the perpetrators would pay. He did not utter the word "terror."
The Boston Marathon is one of the biggest annual athletic events held in the United States. Racers must qualify to compete and there are tens of thousands of spectators.
