Ahead of 26/11 anniversary, tight security in Mumbai

From R. Vasudevan—Reporting from New Delhi
New Delhi, 26 November (

Security has been tightened all across the city on the eve of the fourth anniversary of the 26/11 terror attack, police said on Sunday.

The lone caught 26/11 terrorist,Mohammad Ajmal Kasab, was executed at Yerawada prison in Pune on November 21.

The security has also been tightened after the Pakistan Taliban said they would attack Indian targets to avenge the 'killing' of Kasab. Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan had said that the outfit would mount attacks "in India and anywhere" to avenge the hanging of Kasab.

Police said that there would be heavy security deployment in and around the city. Vital organisations, including the airports, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) and others will be under tight vigil and extra security would be deployed there. "We will also check the entry and exit points of the city," a police official said.

Security would be stepped up at public places like the railway stations and bus stops. Police will also conduct "nakabandi" (road blocks) at all important places in Mumbai.
