New Delhi, March 6 (IANS) Delhi Police Friday increased security in and around the St. Stephen’s College after Defence Minister A.K. Antony’s son Ajit, a student of the college, was threatened by an outsider.
According to highly placed police sources, Ajit, a second-year BA student, was threatened in a washroom of the college Thursday by a stranger who said he will blow up the college.

A bomb disposal squad and a dog squad carried out checks at the campus. However, Ajit did not attend classes Friday.
