Red AlertÂ has been imposed in the enitre DMRC (Delhi Metro) netwok from 6 pm on Wednesday amid escalating tension between India and Pakistan. Under the red alert, all station controllers are required to inspect entire station premises for any suspicious items/activity, including parking lots and report to the control centre every two hours.
The move comes in the wake of escalating tensions between India and Pakistan.Â New Delhi said an IAF pilot is "missing in action" and a Pakistani fighter jet was shot down on Wednesday, as fears of war darkened India-Pakistan relations with Islamabad launching retaliatory strikes and claiming it has arrested an Indian pilot in its territory.Â
