An alert has been sounded in West Bengal, particularly in its coastal areas and in areas where vital installations exist, till the Republic Day to guard against possible attack by terrorist organisations.

The state's Chief Secretary, Samar Ghosh, said today that the security measure had been taken, acting on warning by central intelligence agencies that there could be terror strikes emanating from the water front, Ghosh said.

Apart from this, there is also a need for strengthening security measures during X-mas and New Year festivities, he said.

Police sources said security personnel in the districts bordering with neighbouring countries have been asked to intensify vigil.
