Security beefed at Mumbai WTC following LeT threat

Security has been beefed up at the World Trade Centre in Mumbai on Wednesday after an anonymous letter threatened to blow it up.

Mumbai May 23 : Security has been beefed up at the World Trade Centre in Mumbai on Wednesday after an anonymous letter threatened to blow it up.

Police forces were deployed outside and inside the high-rise building located at the up market Cuff Parade locality, which houses various financial and investment institutions and leading business houses.

Police said the letter, allegedly written by Pakistan-based militant outfit; Lashker-e-Toiba however, did not give any specific reason for blowing up the twin-towers, made on the design of the World Trade Centre in New York, which were brought down in 2001, killing thousands of people.

"The letter came through post and we took immediate necessary steps. Firstly, we approached the local police station and gave them necessary instructions and took their advice... We have beefed up our security and have taken several steps but it will not be proper to disclose them at this juncture," said Y.R.Warerkar, Director of the twin-towers.

However, the employees working there were indifferent to the threat call.

"Our staff is least bothered about the threat. Police is there to protect us. We will definitely come to office tomorrow," said Mahesh Verma, an employee working there.

"This is all false...we have not received any such information. No one is bothered about it," said R.K. Anand, another employee.

The letter comes in wake of recent blasts in Mecca mosque in Hyderabad in which 11 people were killed. Another series of blasts shook Gorakhpur late on Tuesday, injuring five people.
