Pune police on Saturday claimed the management of German Bakery that was bombed in February 13 terror attack had not followed the standard security guidelines given to all establishments in Koregaon Park area.
Talking to reporters in Pune, city police commissioner Satyapal Singh said a letter detailing the necessary security
guidelines to be implemented was handed over to the manager of the eatery on October 9, 2009.
"They did not follow the security guidelines", he added.
Maintaining that investigators were on the "right track", Singh denied reports that the authorities had received a fresh
terror alert for Pune where the security has been beefed up since
"We have stepped up bandobast to reassure the common people in the wake of the terror attack", he said.
Asked on a television channel report quoting Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan on "some arrests" made in the
German Bakery case, the commissioner said, "he has no information on this".
He said rumour mongers were having a field day in the city and warned them of action if they were caught.
