Karnataka has put its intelligence wing and special agencies, including anti-terrorist cell, on high alert after an input from Centre suggested possible terror attacks by Lashkar-e-Taiba in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh.

"We received an alert last night that there is possibility of three-members of LeT striking in Andhra Pradesh and Centre wants (neighbouring) Karnataka also to be on alert," Karnataka Home Minister V S Acharya told reporters here.

"We have sounded our intelligence department and also special wings to step up vigilance," he said.
