Alert in UP after intelligence inputs of attack by 'saffron clad' terrorists

An alert was sounded across Uttar Pradesh and security was beefed up at all important religious and public places after intelligence agencies warned that terrorists, dressed as 'sadhus' (sage) could launch attacks in the state at religious places.

According to the police sources here on Saturday, the alert was sounded after intelligence inputs from Madhya Pradesh police.

Sources said that the MP police, in a letter to their UP counterpart, said that over a dozen ISI-trained terrorists, dressed as 'sadhus' planned to attack important religious places in the state.

''Security has been beefed up at all important religious tows, including Ayodhya, Mathura and Varanasi,'' said a senior police official here.

The intelligence agencies also said that the ISI had trained these terrorists in Hindu rituals so that no one could suspect them.
