A day after the twin blasts in Dilsukhnagar in Hyderabad, Karnataka Director General and Inspector General of police L.R. Pachau held a meeting with senior police officers to review security measures by the police.

The meeting attended by top police officials from Intelligence and Internal security wing among others, discussed various measures to counter possible attacks in the city.

Referring to reports that the Centre had shared information with states two days ago about possible terror strikes in the country, Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) said Karnataka too had received a general alert in the wake of Afzal Guru's hanging. But, it was not a specific alert about any possible attack in Bangalore or any part of the State.

Meanwhile security checks have been intensified at public places and sensitive areas where anti sabotage check squad, dog squads and bomb detection squads have been pressed into service.

The police officials have been directed to step up patrolling in their respective areas, Additional Commissioner of Police T. Suneel Kumar said.
