LeT threatens blasts at railway stations, temples

The terror outfit, Lashkar-e-Taiba, has threatened to blow up railway stations here and at Dehra Dun and Rishikesh on the Independence Day.

A letter containing the threat was received by Haridwar railway station superintendent Samarendra Goswami on Wednesday.

The letter, purporting to be from LeT area commander Kareem Ansari, has also threatened to blow up Har-Ki-Pauri, the main bathing ghat, and several famous temples here on August 22.

Mr. Goswami immediately informed the local intelligence unit, the Government Railway Police and the police. The police have launched an investigation and intensified security in and around the railway stations and other places in the city. — PTI
