Event

Indian security forces have arrested three individuals on terror charges in Assam on Monday, November 25.

The suspects are believed to have links with the Islamic State (IS). Details are still emerging.

Context

For decades, a variety of terrorist actors have perpetrated attacks on Indian territory. Ten years ago, in November 2008 terrorists attacked a number of sites in Mumbai, including luxury hotels, a railway station, a religious site, and a restaurant. Over 160 people were killed (including about 30 tourists and foreign businessmen) and more than 300 were injured.

Advice

Individuals in India are advised to report any suspicious objects or behavior to the authorities and to exercise caution at all times, particularly when visiting sites that are particularly likely to be targeted in an attack (e.g. public transportation, train stations, ports, airports, public or government buildings, embassies or consulates, international organizations, schools and universities, religious sites, markets, hotels and restaurants frequented by foreigners/Westerners, festivals, etc.), especially in major cities.
