Kolkata cannot be ruled out of terror strikes as it sits very much in the terror network that spreads from Afghanistan to Bangladesh taking India in its sweep, West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb said.

Bhattacharjee cautioned the city police to be more vigilant and strict against subversive forces.

Claiming that the city Police is one among the best in the country, the chief minister told a felicitation programme of the Kolkata police that its responsibility had increased much in view of the troubled times.

"Though our police force is one of the best in the country, we can't be complacent. We have to be more careful," he said.

He spoke of the need for the city police to reach out to people so that the social face of the police became more visible.
