Delhi Police on high alert after input on terror attack during festive season

New Delhi: The Delhi Police received an input about a terrorist attack being planned in the national capital during the festive season, as per the police department.

Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana on Saturday discussed anti-terror measures in the wake of the input during a meeting held with top officials.

The police officials also discussed how to prevent terrorists from taking support of locals. Asthana however, said no such attack can happen unless the attackers have local support.

“Local criminals, gangsters and orthodox elements can help in such attack,” he added.

“Cybercafe, chemical shop, parking spaces, scrap and car dealers should be professionally checked and monitored. There are inputs that petrol pumps and petrol tankers can be targeted,” the Delhi Police Commissioner said.

The Police Commissioner also directed the officers to launch a campaign for the verification of tenants and workers.

The police will also hold meetings with RWAs, Aman committee, and coordinate with 'eyes and ears scheme' stakeholders like rehriwallahs and watchmen with a focus on community policing.

Security has been tightened across Delhi after intel reports and input of terrorist activity.

All Delhi jails, including Tihar Jail, Mandoli Jail and Rohini Jail, were put on alert.

In view of gangster Jitender Mann Gogi's shootout at Rohini Court yesterday, there is a possibility of a ‘gang war’. Therefore, all Delhi jails, including Tihar Jail, Mandoli Jail and Rohini Jail, have been put on alert,” a prison official was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
