Alert has been sounded in Uttar Pradesh after a video of the terror outfit, al-Qaeda, threatening to carry out its activities in India surfaced on the social media, including You Tube.
State IG (Law and Order), Amrendra Kumar Sengar, said steps have been taken to maintain peace.
Mr. Sengar said the local intelligence agencies were in touch with their sister agencies. “All the districts have been alerted,” he told journalists.
About the measures taken against the surreptitious activities of some organisations with their roots in the country, Mr. Sengar said periodic advisories were sent to field units to keep a watch on different organisations involved in anti-national activities.On terror radar
Uttar Pradesh has been on the radar of terror outfits since 2001. The State intelligence agencies suspect that in the background of increasing incidents of communal tension in the State recently, particularly in western Uttar Pradesh, the sleeping modules of some terror outfits may become active again.
Recently, a suspected ISI agent, Asif Ali, was nabbed by the Special Task Force of U.P. Police from Subhash Bazar area of Meerut. He was charged with passing on classified information related to Indian Army to the ISI, STF sources said.
