No terrorist in Bihar, says cop

PATNA: State police on Monday denied media reports of Taliban and LeT terrorists sneaking into Bihar from Nepal side.

ADG (headquarters) U S Dutt wondered where from the media got such an information. "There is no such indication from the Central intelligence agency either," he said.
He said a man was killed in Nepal side across Araria district and the killers are suspected to have entered Bihar. Apparently this led to speculations about terrorists moving in Bihar, Dutt added.
As for the threat to Indian railways, meanwhile, sources said an ADG-rank police officer in Kerala received an anonymous call recently. The caller identified himself as Bashir and said trains and railway properties would be targeted. The caller did not give any specific details about the location of the target.
As a precautionary measure, the Union ministry of home affairs circulated a nationwide warning to the railway police.
