With intelligence agencies giving inputs that Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat could be the target of Lashkar-e-Toiba, the Centre has asked all states to take special security precautions when the two leading figures visit their region.

Home Ministry sources said the Centre has informed that Azad, a former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister, and Bhagwat are in the hit list of the Pakistan-based terror outfit and they could be targeted by the militants anywhere in the country.

Both Azad and Bhagwat enjoy Z-plus security with the former being accorded with the elite Black Cat commando protection with bullet-proof car.

The Centre told the states that proper sensitisation should be carried out when Azad and Bhagwat visit.
