Security tightened in Bangalore

Investigations are on into the terror attack in Bangalore, in which 2 people were killed and several others were injured.

Although no one has claimed responsibility for the blasts, sources in the Union Home Ministry say Pakistan-based Lashker-e-Toiba along with the local support of SIMI could be responsible.

Police sources in Bangalore however say the nature of the attack points at the Bangladesh outfit HuJI.

There are reports that a Karnataka police team left for Hyderabad on Friday night to interrogate an MBA student who was arrested on July 15 in the city. They hope to interrogate Mohammed Muqeemudin Yasir, brother of Raziuddin Nasir, who was arrested on January 29 on charges of organising terror-training camps in the forests near Hubli, Karnataka.

Bangalore is on high alert after Friday’s terror attack. Security has been tightened in high-density areas, defence and space establishments, the state secretariat, the high court, IT firms, railway stations, the central bus station and the airport.

The Union Home Ministry has decided to amend the rules and provide CISF security to IT companies in Bangalore. Currently, CISF security is given only to public sector companies.

The Intelligence Bureau had reportedly received inputs that terrorists could target the cyber cities of Hyderabad and Bangalore and both the state governments were told to be on high alert.
