Red alert in Bihar district

A red alert was today sounded in Bihar's Kishanganj district after intelligence reports suggested that eight Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists had sneaked in there from across the porous Indo-Nepal border, official sources said today.

The sources told PTI that sleuths of the Intelligence Bureau  have already visited the district and held a 'secret' meeting with Kishanganj SP Ranjit Kumar Mishra in this regard.

''A red alert has been sounded in the district by the district administration following the reports,'' they said.

Apart from SSB personnel, District Armed Police personnel too were maintaining strict vigil on the porous border and people moving into the district from Nepal were being thoroughly frisked, the SP said.

They said all the important trains were being escorted with heavy security personnel as personnel of the Railway Protection Force were deployed in railway stations in the district.

Vigil was also being kept on the movement of trains in other districts of the Seemanchal belt: Purnia, Araria, and Katihar, the sources said.
