Central intelligence agencies warn threat for PM on August 15 July 29, 2016 10:52

Central intelligence agencies had informed the SPG and anti-terror units a few weeks ago about the possibility of coordinated attacks on August 15.  The security agencies have advised the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to address the nation from within a bulletproof enclosure at Red Fort this Independence Day. Intelligence agencies and the Special Protection Group had made a strong pitch to national security adviser Ajit Doval in this regard.They hope that the PM would not ignore the advisory as the threat perception is "extremely high". If the PM heed the caution, then it might be the first time that he would be allowing this kind of security around him. Last year and the year before, Modi, in a last-minute decision, had decided to do away with the bulletproof enclosure while giving his speech.Apart from Islamic State and al Qaida, Lashkar-e-Toiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed and splinter groups like Hizbul Mujahideen and Harkat-ul-Jehadi-Islami have been plotting to target Modi.Two inputs about al-Qaida and ISIS planning to target Army and police establishments have already been shared. The police, therefore, have chalked out an "unprecedented security arrangement" this time. Central intelligence agencies has informed the SPG and anti-terror units a few weeks ago about the possibility of coordinated attacks on August 15 and a higher possibility of a lonewolf attack.Several drills have been carried out and commandos and spotters have been deployed at strategic locations to keep the PM out of the range of most short and long-range weapons. The innermost cordon has been specially trained in this aspect.PM speaking from within bulletproof enclosures became a tradition after Indira Gandhi's assassination. But in 2014, Modi had bucked this trend in his maiden Independence Day speech as PM.By Premji

Parliament House library visited by a monkey July 29, 2016 10:39

A monkey has found its way into the reading room meant for MPs and journalists. It roamed around the reading room for half an hour. It jumped on the tables and climbed up electrical wires in the gallery area and again climbed down. After failing to discover an exit from the library for about 30 minutes, it made its way out of the main door and through the green-carpeted corridor, and finally left by the main gate of the building on the side meant for VIPs.The library staff kept calling for Parliament security, but to no avail. There was no help forthcoming as there was no way to catch the simian in Parliament in the absence of a langoor, which had been earlier deployed to deal with the recurring monkey menace.Earlier, langoors were employed for chasing away monkeys in parts of Lutyens' Delhi. But the decision to do away with langoors had been taken, with the Parliament House bidding them goodbye in June end, when their employment was terminated. Monkeys are being again spotted on Parliament premises since langoors took their last pay and left.The security staff at the Central Hall door has quickly shut the gates and prevented the monkey from intruding into the place where MPs, ministers and journalists, along with the catering staff are always present in good numbers.By Premji
