Bhopal, Aug 14 (IANS) Security has been tightened in five Madhya Pradesh towns after a letter threatened terror attacks similar to the Ahmedabad bombings, the police said Thursday. “The letter received by the SDM (sub-divisional magistrate) Niyaz Ahmad yesterday (Wednesday) says that blasts similar to the Ahmedabad blasts will be carried out at several places in Gwalior, Khandwa, Ujjain, Datia and Bhopal,” Gwalior Police Superintendant V.K. Suryavanshi told IANS.
