Lucknow, Sep 13 (UNI) The Central Intelligence agency in the past had issued two advisories in August on possibility of terror attacks in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh following a ban on the Students Islamic Movement of India(SIMI) by the Center, sources said.

According to sources, the first advisory was issued by the agency on August 8 on likely threat of terrorist attack in the national capital after the ban on SIMI was imposed by the Centre.
