Some hours before the state’s security wing was reported to have asked the law enforcement agencies to increase security. Earlier two letters were purportedly received from a commander of the Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad. The letter had warned of attacks on railway stations, bridges, places of worship and other major installations, and VIPs too.
