Lucknow, Nov 29(UNI) After the black Friday of November 23 when serial blasts rocked three district courts in Uttar Pradesh, the Intelligence Bureau has once again cautioned the state government of possible terrorist attack on police recruitment rallies or establishment.

In a specific advisory, issued on November 27 last, the agency had asked the UP government to step up its vigil in the state, particularly at the recruitment rallies and near police establishments.

As per the advisory, the intelligence sleuths have intercepted a telephonic conversation originated from western part of the state in which someone was directing to work on the police recuitment drive now.

However, the sleuths are further working on the telephonic conversation and were yet to give any details.

Yesterday, UP chief minister Mayawati had blamed the Centre for infiltration of terrorist modules from the Indo-Nepal border while governor T V Rajeswar had admitted that there was presence of 'sleeping terrorist modules' in the state.

Meanwhile, no state government officials have confirmed about the recent intelligence advisory, but maintained that after the November 23 blasts, security measures in all the important places have been tightened.

At present a CRPF recruitment drive is underway at Rampur, while a recruitment rally of army scheduled to be held at Gorakhpur was postponed following November 23 serial blasts as a precautionary measure.

The last advisory, a brief two-paragraph, coded letter, was the first intelligence warning to the state after the serial bombs blast and it described the person saying ''aab police bharti me kaam hona hai''.

Earlier, after the November 23 serial blasts, in which 13 people were killed and 70 others wounded, Chief Minister Mayawati had accused the central intelligence agency of failing to inform the state about the possible blasts by the terrorist outfits,but in reality the Intelligence Bureau(IB) had cautioned the state about the possible attack three days prior to the blasts.

The Allahabad unit of the IB had sent an advisory to the state government about possible attack by the terrorist organisations in six cities or more.
