Based on the alert, Dhoni's security has been beefed up with special arrangements made by Jharkhand police. The alert has been dispatched to all state police chiefs warning of celebrities being terror targets.
Dhoni was seen escorted by a jeep full of armed policemen from Doranda police station when he was traveling from the airport to his Harmu Housing Colony residence last week. It has also been reported that plainclothesmen have been deployed near his residence and neighbourhood for enhanced security.
Sources have revealed that the terror groups have the photographs and other details of the celebrities and political leaders that could help them identify them and plan an assault. The IB officers stated that they did not want to take any chance when it comes to the security of the celebrities.
