    NEW DELHI - THE US embassy in India warned on Saturday of possible 'imminent' militant attacks in New Delhi as it heightened the threat security awareness level for its citizens in the capital.

    'There are increased indications that terrorists are planning imminent attacks in New Delhi,' the US embassy said in a statement on its website, urging tourists to avoid half-a-dozen of the city's popular shopping areas.

    The advisory marked an increase in the threat awareness level for US residents and visitors to the Indian capital. Earlier in April the embassy had said there were 'increased indications that terrorists are planning attacks in New Delhi.'

    'Americans traveling or residing in India are strongly encouraged to maintain a high level of vigilance,' the embassy said in its notice.

    The latest US alert updated long-standing general advice for visitors to India that they should exercise caution and underlined security risks in the city as it gears up to host the Commonwealth Games in October.

    no surprise that these countries are giving a warning lol. do you think that the " possible" terrosist attackers will ask for the passports of the people?

    What a bullshit, I always warn people traveling to india " a level of vigilance". The highest risk factor in india for your safety is being a muslim and it has been like this for years lol

    India has always been a high risk destination and will continue to be so . I will say though on three trips to India i have never felt for my safety once, even when i was in Amritsar and Musharef had started a coup in Pakistan , it was very much of an attitude of life go's on , no body bothered about the fact that civil war was in the offering just a few milles down the Road in Pakistan. The Pan walla was still selling his Pan !! The Chai walla still selling two Rps glass's of Chai !! .. Auto rickshaw drivers still harrasing you , it would take an earth shattering event to change life in any large Indian City , life go's on ....
    Travel lightly ....

    No terror threat to Commonwealth Games: Chidambaram
    วันเสาร์ ที่ 02 ต.ค. 2553

    New Delhi, Oct 2 (PTI) Government of India on Friday dismissed as "baseless" reports of terror threat to the Commonwealth Games, saying people should go for enjoying the sporting extravaganza without fear.

    Reacting to a report that terror outfit 'Brigade 313' was to target the Games, Home Minister P Chidambaram said there was no basis to believe it as the report was based on an old input which was recycled.

    "There is no basis that Brigade 313 or (Pak-based wanted terrorist) Ilyas Kashmiri are targeting the Commonwealth Games.... Kindly turn your attention towards the game...enjoy the Games," he said.

    The Home Minister said security for the Commonwealth Games was reviewed from time to time and around 5,000 personnel of Central paramilitary forces have been deployed for the Games which include BSF, CRPF and CISF.
