New Delhi, Dec 6: A red alert was sounded in the national capital over intelligence inputs of a possible terror strike which threw Delhi Police and other security agencies into a tizzy. Security was beefed up across the national capital today with Delhi Police's SWAT and HIT teams being deployed at important installations like airports, railway stations, bus terminals, Metro stations and malls.
Enhanced security was also witnessed at places like India Gate and Red Fort while PCR vans were deployed at strategic locations. The Special Cell of Delhi Police and its intelligence wing kept tabs on any movements of suspected elements throughout the day.
"There was an intelligence input about the possibility of a terror strike in a north Indian city today. It is possible that the attacks in J-K could be what the input was about. Red alert was sounded in the national capital and we were ready for any eventuality," said a senior police official.
As Delhi Police heaved a sigh of relief after the day had passed without incident, Commissioner BS Bassi in the evening reviewed the preparedness of the force at a meeting via video conferencing with all the district DCPs.
