New Delhi:

A possible terror attack warning has been issued by the intelligence agencies to four states in the country as well as New Delhi, reports said. Detailed warnings have been sent out to 22 airports in four cities and high security measures are being taken, authorities have confirmed, reports said.

The four cities include Punjab, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Jammu and Kashmir. An alert about the security threat has been issued by the Civil Aviation Security Bureau to the police chiefs in each state, the CISF or paramilitary force which guards airports, as well as to state-run and private airlines.

Baggage at the airports will be checked randomly and properly, while a careful monitoring of parking lots as well as loading areas used by airport vehicles will be done.

While a high security alert has already in place in view of the festive season, but agencies are concerned about a possible terror attack in retaliation for the surgical strikes carried out by Indian Army across LoC targeting seven terrorist launch pads last week in response to Uri attacks.
