Mumbai : Security at Mumbai's upscale World Trade Centre was beefed up Wednesday after an anonymous letter threatening to blast the high rise towers on Thursday was handed over to police.
The letter was received by the World Trade Centre at south Mumbai's Cuffe Parade area Tuesday and sent to the police commissioner's office.
"The letter threatened to blow up the twin towers on May 24. The letter, however, did not give any specific reason for blowing it up," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone-I) Brijesh Singh.
"Following the threat we have beefed up security in and around the twin towers and are also conducting a through search of the premises. We are keeping a close watch on people visiting the buildings. We are not taking any chances," Singh told IANS.
