|Deccan Mujahideen email threatens Delhi
1 Dec 2008, TNN
NEW DELHI: Three-wheeler autos in the capital have come under the
security scanner after the terror siege of Mumbai. According to highly
government sources, there are intelligence inputs on the possible use
of autos for triggering a blast in a crowded area of Delhi.
The Intelligence Bureau has also sounded a fresh alert to Delhi Police
asking them to step up security at vital installations in the capital
after an email, which police sources said was signed by the "Deccan
Mujahideen", warned of a repeat of the Mumbai terror attack at Indira
Gandhi International Airport and the three major railway stations.
Acting on the three-wheeler threat, police are conducting random
checks on autos, particularly around the airport. During the last
serial blasts in Delhi, a bomb had gone off in an auto at Ghaffar
Market in Karol Bagh. At that time too there had been intelligence
alerts on the possibility of key installations in Delhi coming under
threat from autos.
Experts say, since three-wheelers run on CNG, an 'auto bomb' is likely
to cause more damage than an explosion in a petrol or diesel vehicle.
"The information said that explosives in an auto were likely to be
planted and set off in a crowded area. After that, the airport has
been checking on idle autos and those which enter the premises without
passengers. The threat still holds and checking has been intensified,"
said a government source.
Police sources do not rule out the possibility of the September 13
Ghaffar Market blast having been a "test case" for a bigger strike.
Meanwhile, DCP (IGI Airport) Sanjay Kumar said they had received a
communique from IB about stepping up vigil at the airport.
"We are already on high alert and security has been beefed up in the
area. We are coordinating with NSG. While CISF is also checking
vehicles, specially on the approach roads to the airport and has
increased surveillance at various points, the Delhi Police has
increased its deployment in the area as well. Airlines have also been
asked to beef up security wherever required."
The Indian Railways too has decided to increase security at all
stations in Mumbai and Delhi. "Keeping the CST shootout in mind, we
plan to increase security at all stations on our network. This will
include 17 Metro stations. Some of the new equipment, to be installed
soon, include electronic access control systems which will be set up
under the build, own, operate and transfer model (BOOT). In addition,
the dog squad will be strengthened and CCTVs with at least 30 days of
storage capacity will be installed," said a senior police officer.
