Woman fidayeens being trained to attack Mumbai, Pune: Patil

MUMBAI: Woman fidayeens were being trained to carry out terror attacks on Mumbai, Pune, Nashik and other towns in Maharashtra, home minister R R Patil told the Lower House on Tuesday.

Patil revealed this in a written reply to a question raised by BJP legislators Yogesh Sagar and Gopal Shetty during the Question Hour session.

During the session, the two legislators asked the home minister what counter-measures were taken by the government after it received the inputs from the central agency.

Without getting into the details of the intelligence inputs received on January 12, Patil said the government put the police and other agencies on alert. Sagar later told TOI the questions were based on special IB inputs. "We cannot share the details of this inputs," he said.

"The district police chiefs, railway police and other arms of the state police were immediately informed by way of a wireless message to be on high alert," he said, adding that a standard operating procedure was also put in place to ensure terror strikes could be prevented.

Home department officials refused to get into the details of the inputs.

Meanwhile, the food and hospitality industry wants the state police to make security equipment affordable and give permission to install them without much hassle. The police recently made it mandatory for all restaurants, bars and hotels to install CCTV cameras.
