The shadow of terror has once again started hovering over the country's capital Delhi. The Intelligence Bureau (IB) has issued an alert for a terror attack by Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), and other radical groups in Delhi ahead of Independence Day on August 15. The 10-page report of the IB states that Delhi is under threat from Lashkar, Jaish, and other radical groups. The Delhi Police has also been instructed by the IB to implement strict rules for entry into the Red Fort before Independence Day. The IB has also mentioned in its report the attack on former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and incidents like Udaipur and Amaravati.
The Intelligence Department of India has given such a warning that in the capital also, a special vigil should be kept in New Delhi and North Delhi districts. It is worth mentioning here that Chandni Chowk, Red Fort (which has already been attacked) is present in the northern district of Delhi. Whereas, say in the New Delhi district, only the government of the country runs. This means that a crowded place like Connaught Place exists in this district. So Parliament, Prime Minister's Office-Residence, Rashtrapati Bhavan, and most of the central ministries of the country are present in the New Delhi district only.
Increased security in crowded areas
According to the text inside the note sent by the IB, destructive forces are targeting mobs and government buildings. Out of this, the first target of suspects can be the crowded markets of Delhi. In this case, a top officer associated with the security wing of Delhi Police told TV9 Bharatvarsh, “Such inputs have been received. Anyway, we are already taking precautions with this input. The foot march has been increased in crowded areas. By checking the CCTV cameras installed in the markets, we are convinced that they are working properly. To see the live footage of these CCTV cameras, the number of policemen inside the district CCTV control room has also been increased. So that no suspicion of any kind can escape.
On the other hand, Delhi Traffic Police has also been alerted after the inputs received from the Indian Intelligence Agency. Usually, the traffic police have their eyes on traffic management. Since the input of IB cannot be ignored. Therefore, in addition to the police station outpost, beat officers, the traffic police have also been asked to remain alert. The traffic police have been specially instructed to keep an eye on unattended or long-standing vehicles on the roadside. Along with the traffic police, the parking people have also been asked to immediately inform the police about any suspicious vehicle parked on the roadside (authorized parking).
Crime Branch and Special Cell were also warned
In an important meeting held two days back at the Delhi Police Headquarters, the Crime Branch and the Special Cell were also warned to eliminate the ill-intentioned intentions of terrorist organizations like Lashkar and Jaish-e-Mohammed in the capital in advance. Along with this, the Intelligence Branch of Delhi Police has also been made aware of this input. After this input, Delhi Police Headquarters is giving priority to maintaining internal coordination, especially between its teams and central agencies. So that no important input is left out of sight.
