UT home secretary Anurag Agarwal clarified on Thursday evening that there was no specific threat to Chandigarh and routine directions have been issued by the Intelligence Bureau (IB) to all states. He said it was a routine advisory regarding dos and don’ts to be followed during the festival season. He said there was nothing to panic about.

He said they have sounded the agencies which are on alert to avoid any untoward incident in the city.

He said the bureau normally issues such alerts during the festive season, but the advisory gains importance due to the current situation between India and Pakistan.
