Agra (Uttar Pradesh), Oct.8 (ANI): Agra Police have reportedly tightened security at public places, including the world famous Taj Mahal, in the wake of a letter received by the authorities warning of serial blasts.
Police claimed that the letter has been sent by the alleged area commander of the Indian Mujahideen terrorist group. It was received by Agra Cantonment railway station superintendent R.C. Meena on Tuesday.
“Even if it is a hoax or some kind of a prank, we can not take it lightly. Accordingly, all precautions are being taken and we have stepped up vigilance,” Senior Superintendent of Police Raghuvir Lal said.
The letter warns of serial blasts targeting the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Agra Cantonment railway station, Bankey Bihari temple in Vrindavan and Dan Ghati in Goverdhan. The letter in Hindi is neatly written. (ANI)
