Mumbai : Maharashtra government has beefed up security at vital installations in Mumbai, places of worship and those frequented by tourists as per instructions from the Union Home ministry after the terror attack at the Pathankot Air base in Punjab.

“We have had discussions with Mumbai Police Commissioner (Javed Ahmed) and are extra alert on places where required. There is tight vigil in places where there is a lot of population, places of religious worship, important installations like BARC, MSEB locations, corporate company houses, Kendriya Vidyalaya Airforce Station, Ojhar and defence installations in and outside Mumbai,” Additional Chief Secretary (Home) K P Bakshi told PTI.

“Also, railway stations, bus depots, airports are on high alert. We have instructed police officials to beef up security at all these places and report immediately if anything suspicious found,” he added.

Bakshi said that the instructions from the Union Home ministry were received immediately after the terror attack at the Pathankot Indian Air Force base.

“We will augment resources if required,” Bakshi said.

After operations lasting three days, security forces today killed two more Pakistani terrorists within the Pathankot air base with the government saying six of them have now been neutralised, but it was not clear whether all the intruders have been eliminated.
