An alert has been sounded in the city following fresh intelligence inputs that two terror suspects might have sneaked into the metropolis to carry out strikes, police said on Thursday.
The inputs, which even specified the names of the suspects, say that the duo from a neighbouring country might masquerade as taxi drivers to conduct recce and execute their plans, sources said.
They, however, declined to divulge the names of the suspects and their nationality lest it should hamper investigation.
The police have intensified patrolling and checking of taxis across the metropolis. Traffic police are also conducting random checks of licences.
Intelligence inputs about possible terror strikes have become a frequent occurrence since 26/11 attacks and all precautions in this regard have been taken, they said.
Special Branch officials are searching various lodges and hotels to check if any foreign national was staying without proper documentation.
All police stations and Mumbai police’s various units are working on the inputs to prevent any terror attacks, the sources said.
