New Delhi, April 29: The BJP's prime ministerial candidate and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi may be a prime target of the home-grown terror outfit Indian Mujahideen (IM) as well as the most wanted underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has claimed.

According to the Intelligence Bureau (IB) reports, VHP has written a letter to President Pranab Mikherjee seeking enhanced security for Modi.

The VHP President Ashok Singhal on Monday has reportedly written in the letter, "This is to request your highest offices to ensure immediately through your government and the State Governments an upgraded, comprehensive and foolproof security cover for the safety of the BJP's prime ministerial candidate Shri Narendra Modi. The country in general and his supporters in particular are concerned over a possible attack being made on him."

"The Intelligence Bureau (IB) has issued a high alert of a possible suicide bomber threat to Shri Modi. As per the high alert, the attack may be on the lines of assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. The IB reports also stated that Gujarat Chief Minister Modi won't be shot at, and it is likely that a suicide bomber may target him, disguised as a supporter. The alert does not specify the gender of the attacker," he has mentioned.

"Terrorism in our country has for long been the biggest challenge. The government must address this challenge and work on a comprehensive action plan to neutralize the terrorists/mercenaries/ assassins and their network, kingpins and sleeper cells in the country and an effective investigation must also be conducted in the present context and all the needful done to ensure safety for Shri Narendra Modi," the letter further added.

The VHP has shown concerns after it came to know that Modi may be targeted the same way as the former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated by LTTE.

IB has already issued an high alert over Modi's security.

Recently, Modi had broken his silence on Dawood Ibrahim, saying that issue of bringing him back to India is not something to be discussed openly.

At present, Modi is categorised under Z-plus security and is guarded by National Security Guard (NSG) and Gujarat Police personnel.

Last month, former Home Secretary and BJP leader R K Singh had said Modi was on top of the terrorist hit list and sought adequate security for him.

"Its not only today but even when I was Home Secretary of the country, Narendra Modi was on number one position in the hit list of terrorists," he had said.
