Tight security on eve of 26/11 anniversary
Mumbai: Security has been tightened all across the city on the eve of the fourth anniversary of the 26/11 terror attack, police said on Sunday.
The lone 26/11 terrorist, Mohammad Ajmal Kasab, who was caught alive, was executed at Yerawada prison in Pune on November 21.
The security has also been tightened after the Pakistan Taliban said they would attack Indian targets to avenge the 'killing' of Kasab, sources said.
Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan had said that the outfit would mount attacks "in India and anywhere" to avenge the hanging of Kasab.
Police said that there would be heavy security deployment in and around the city. Important landmarks, including the airports, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) and others will be under tight vigil and extra security would be deployed there, police said.
"We will also check the entry and exit points of the city," a police official said.
Security would be stepped up at public places like the railway stations and bus stops, he said.
Police will also conduct "nakabandi" at all important places in Mumbai.
Expressing serious concern over the ongoing protests in Andhra Pradesh, following the nod for the creation of a separate Telangana State, the Communist Party of India (CPI) leader D Raja said that the Centre must address the genuine concerns of the people and assure them that their interests will be duly protected.
