After rippling Mumbai, now the terrorist are planning to enter the capital city Delhi by planning new attacks.
Following intelligence report on a possible use of three-wheeler autos by terrorists to carry out massive attacks in Delhi, three-wheelers in the nation’s capital have come under the security scanner. Highly placed government sources say 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 asked Delhi Police to step up security at vital installations in the capital after an email, which police sources said was signed by the ‘Deccan Mujahideen’. The email warned of a repeat of the Mumbai terror attack at Indira Gandhi International Airport and the three major railway stations at New Delhi.
According to experts, since three-wheelers run on CNG, an ‘auto bomb’ is likely to cause more damage than an explosion in a petrol or diesel vehicle. 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.
“The information said that explosives in an auto were likely to be planted and set off in a crowded area. After that, the airport security guards have 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.
The Indian Railways too is stepping up 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, includes 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,” a senior police officer said.
Terrorists are nowadays coming with new Lethal Ideas to create havoc & maximum damage. Its Clearly a failure of India’s intelligence as well as security bureau & the whole system really needs to be revamped. Now it’s high time that after several terrorist incidents, the government should pull out its socks & mobilise its entire system which needs to be more effectively in place.
