The Vaishno Devi shrine in Jammu is one of the targets on the radar of terrorists, the Rajya Sabha was informed on Wednesday.

In a written reply to a query in this regard, Minister of State for Home Affairs Mullappally Ramachandran said, "Central Security Agencies have furnished inputs based on intelligence intercepts to that effect. It is not in public interest to disclose these facts."

He said central security agencies regularly conduct security audit of all important pilgrimage centres including Tirupathi and Shirdi.

"The Ministry has sent advisories to the State Government and Union Territories Administration to prepare appropriate security plans in order to secure and protect these religious places," he said.
