Security alert issued in Delhi after reports from UP Police of possible terror attack: sources
A high security alert has been issued in New Delhi after Uttar Pradesh police received reports of possible terror attacks in the nation’s capital, sources said. According to an officer from the Delhi Police Special Cell, an anonymous email, allegedly sent by a terrorist organization Tehrik-e-Taliban (Indian Cell) was received by some people who rated the UP Police at almost the same way.
UP Police forwarded the details of said email to Delhi Police. Acting on entrances, Delhi police carried out pre-emptive searches of New Delhi’s Sarojni Nagar market on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Sarojini Nagar Mini Market Traders Association chairman Ashok Randhawa said on Tuesday that the markets would be closed due to a security threat. “Due to a security threat. Delhi police have been ordered to close the markets and observe strict vigilance,” he said.
However, Delhi police denied issuing orders to close the market. “We went there to carry out preventive research and not to shut down the market,” Delhi police officials said.
Sources say Delhi Police are trying to track the person who sent the email while trying to verify the claim he made in the email. (ANI)
