Mumbai airport, Taj Hotel on alert following terror threat

Mumbai: The Mumbai domestic and international airports and the iconic Taj Hotel nearby received a terror threat, following which security agencies went on an alert, official sources said here on Tuesday.

The airport manager on duty late Monday night received a call that the airport and the Taj Hotel outside the airport may be attacked.

Described as a “specific threat”, the agencies concerned beefed up security at these locations.

The incident comes on the eve of the quantum of sentencing for the 12 convicted for the 7/11 Mumbai serial train blasts, scheduled to be pronounced on Wednesday.

Officials at Taj Hotel, near Gateway of India in South Mumbai – which was one of the prime targets during the 26/11 terror attacks – were not available for their reactions.
