India steps up security across country following Mumbai attacks


New Delhi : Security has been strengthened across the country in the wake of a series of terror attacks in Mumbai that claimed over 100 lives and left more than 300 injured.

Intensified checking and patrolling were being carried out at bus terminals, railway stations, airport, cinema halls and other public places.

Hotel authorities were also asked to step up security at their establishments.

In the national capital that witnessed a serial blast in September, policemen have been deployed in full strength. The city is going to polls in the next 48 hours.

“Our men have been briefed about the situation. We have strengthened the security by having maximum deployment. Checking are being conducted at public places,” a senior Delhi Police official said.

Leaving nothing to chance, security has also been stepped up at railway and Metro stations, inter-state bus terminals, airport, cinema halls, shopping malls and other sensitive points, he said.

Police personnel were deployed across Tamil Nadu at places, including hotels and places of worship, where people congregate.

A meeting of top police officials of the state was held last night. “We have taken certain decision regarding security and we are keen that they are implemented to the best,” DGP K P Jain told PTI.

In star hotels and railway stations, Jain said, “we have ensured more physical presence of police.”
