Agartala, August 11 (IANS): The central government has alerted the northeastern states about possible militant strikes in the run-up to Independence Day celebrations Wednesday. “Central intelligence wings and the union home ministry have alerted the state governments in northeastern states to keep a strict vigil in the run-up to Independence Day and thwart any attempt of separatist outfits to create violence,” Tripura’s inspector general of police Nepal Das told IANS.
He said: “Both the central and state governments have also asked the Border Security Force (BSF) to tighten security along the India-Bangladesh border to prevent trans-border movement of militants.” In a separate directive, the director general of civil aviation has asked airport authorities to tighten the vigil in and around all airports in NE states. The Northeast Frontier Railway has also decided to cancel and reschedule all night trains through Assam and Tripura until Aug 17 for security reasons.
