Terror alert sounded for World Badminton Championship in Hyd

Sleuths of the Intelligence Bureau visited the stadium as well as the badminton academy being run by player-turned-coach Pullela Gopichand at Gachchibowli here today to take stock of the situation and alert the organisers over the possible threat from the LeT, highly-placed police sources said.

The Badminton Association of India confirmed the visit by Intelligence Bureau sleuths though the Cyberabad police, under whose jurisdiction the event is being held, remained tight-lipped.

"Yes, the IB people have visited the stadium and the Academy and issued a general alert," BAI joint secretary K Ch Punnaiah Choudary said.

Cyberabad Police Commissioner S Prabhakar Reddy, when contacted, refuse to comment on the issue.

State police spokesman and Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) A K Khan too was evasive saying the issue was being looked after by the Cyberabad police.
