A day after Gujarat was put on high alert following intelligence inputs provided by Pakistan’s National Security Advisor on a possible 26/11-style fidayeen assault, security was tightened on Monday in multiple cities including Delhi, Lucknow, Jaipur, Vijayawada, Bhopal, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad and Panaji in view of Mahashivratri festival.

Security has been beefed up in crowded areas such as malls, bus stops, railway stations and patrolling doubled in light of the terror threat.

On Sunday, police and National Security Guard personnel were mobilised on a massive scale in Gujarat in order to counter any possible terror attack on religious places during Mahashivratri.

Fears of an attack in Gujarat have been mounting over the last four months, sparked by the discovery of five abandoned fishing boats in Harami Nullah, a channel that snakes along the India-Pakistan border before emptying into the Vianbari Creek. The fifth boat was discovered by the Border Security Force (BSF) just last month.

    Modi has again gate crashed. This time the LeT training centers where he and DUMB DOWAL personally selected the attackers and flew them in their flight. They are stationed in the Lodi Marg office for launching attack on Hindus. Brahmins have been advised not to go to any temple(because Brahmin life is precious).
