High alert in MP, security beefed up at Jaipur airport

Bhopal/Rajasthan: Security forces in Madhya Pradesh are on high alert over reports that four ‘terrorists’, along with an ISI agent, have entered India and may be trying to sneak in across the Rajasthan or Gujarat border.
Up north, Rajasthan, too, tightened security at Jaipur International Airport and several districts following an intelligence alert that terrorists might inflitrate into the state from neigbouring Gujarat.
In MP, police are keeping a close vigil on eight western districts that share borders with Rajasthan and Gujarat – Jhabua, Alirajpur, Dhar, Barwani, Ratlam, Mandsaur, Neemuch and Agar-Malwa.
However, MP’s home minister Bala Bachchan rubbished reports of a high alert being sounded on the Gujarat-MP border after an alleged Intelligence Bureau warning as “rumours”. “Police are on alert and the borders of Madhya Pradesh are being closely monitored as precautionary measures but there is no such situation as feared,” he insisted. Bachchan could not be reached for comment on the statement.
