Delhi Police takes measures after US alert on terror strikes
Delhi Police on Saturday said it has taken appropriate security measures to ensure that no untoward incident takes place against the backdrop of the United States issuing alerts about "imminent" terror strikes in the capital.
"Delhi Police is aware of the advisory issued by the US embassy that there are increased indication that terrorist attacks are imminent in New Delhi. The Delhi Police is taking appropriate measures in this regard," Delhi Police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat said.
He also appealed to public to be vigilant and fully cooperate with police and inform the nearest police station or toll free number 1090 on noticing any suspicious object, person or vehicle.
The identity of the informant will be kept secret, he said.
The appeal comes against the backdrop of the US, UK and Australia today issuing fresh advisories, warning of "imminent" terror attacks in New Delhi, particularly in market places like Connaught Place, Greater Kailash and Chandni Chowk, which are "attractive targets" for terrorist groups.
