Terror threat puts Mumbai on high alert

The intelligence input was received from the Central agencies, which reportedly got specific information about Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) terrorists entering the city, the state home ministry officials said. Security was beefed up around churches, which are preparing for Christmas celebrations, and consulates of European countries and the US. Security has also been beefed up at vital installations, including the Taj Mahal and Oberoi-Trident hotels, which were the targets during the 26/11 attacks two years ago.

 According to Home Ministry officials, the Mumbai police headquarters in South Mumbai might be on the radar of terrorists, who could park an explosive-laden vehicle in the parking lot. As a result parking will not be allowed in front of the police headquarters in near future. The police officials, however, described the latest warning as a routine alert.
