Delhi Police continues to be on high alert with top police officials reviewing the security set-up as nearly a dozen serial blasts ripped through Ahmedabad on Saturday within just over 24 hrs of the Bangalore blasts.

Special security cover has been given to crowded areas of the city like airport, railway station, ISBTs, markets and the walled city.

"We have beefed up the security in almost all the crowded places and deployed extra personnel to ensure people's safety," said Rajan Bhagat, Delhi police spokesperson.

On Friday, a high alert was sounded in Delhi soon after the report of serial blasts in Bangalore. "The Capital is on high alert since Friday. We request people to be cautious and request them not to panic," he said.

Police have also appealed to citizens to report any suspicious movement or object to its nearest staff or at emergency call numbers.

Nearly dozen serial blasts rocked the western city of Gujarat. All the blasts took place between 6.30 and 6.50 pm on Saturday in different parts of the city.

The Ahmedabad blasts came a day after the multiple explosions in Bangalore in which two persons were killed.
