A heightened security presence has been deployed at rail stations, bus stands, and places of worship in Madhya Pradesh state since Saturday, October 20, in response to a written note threatening bomb attacks on such sites in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Gujarat states on October 20 and November 9. Lashkar-e-Taiba is suspected of issuing the threat. Increased security measures are also to be expected in Rajasthan and Gujarat states over the coming weeks. Transportation delays are possible in affected areas.
LeT is a Pakistan-based terrorist group founded in the late 1980s as the militant arm of Markaz Ad-Da'wa Wal-Irshad and is primarily focused on wresting control of India-administered Kashmir.
Individuals in Madhya Pradesh are advised to monitor developments to the situation, remain vigilant for militant activity, report all suspicious objects or behavior to police, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
