An alert was sounded along the 856km long border with Bangladesh in view of the terrorist attack in a restaurant in Dhaka late Friday night, a top police official in Agartala said on Sunday.

The official said that as soon as the report of terrorist attack was received, BSF and all other security forces including state police, were alerted so that no unwanted element could cross the border to enter in Indian territory.

Twenty hostages, including 19-year-old Indian woman Tarishi Jain, were hacked to death by terrorists inside the cafe popular with expats in the diplomatic zone before commandos launched an assault killing six attackers and capturing one alive.
