'Credible info' on terror strikes in India: US
Washington/New Delhi, Apr 22: Just days after the US Department of State issued a travel alert warning its citizens of possible terror strikes in India in the view of the Feb 13 Pune blast, US Embassy in New Delhi issued another warning cautioning its citizens in India.
US Embassy in New Delhi on Wednesday, Apr 21 issued a 'Warden Message' alerting Americans in India of potential terror strike particularly at places where US citizens or westerner tourists are known to visit.
"Markets, such as those located in Chandni Chowk, Connaught Place, Greater Kailash, Karol Bagh, Mehrauli, and Sarojini Nagar, can be especially attractive targets for terrorist groups," said the Warden message.
Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs P J Crowley in the US embassy, however, declined to provide any further information.
When asked about the latest advisory, an official in the Obama administration told a news agency, "Yes, we have sufficient credible information."
He added that US has shared the information with the Indian government and the two countries are co-operating with each other to thwart the terror threat.
The official did not disclose details as to which terrorist outfits were planning the attack.
Besides US, Australia and Canada have also issued similar advisories.
