Mumbai, Aug 20: A high-alert has been sounded in Mumbai for Sunday following intelligence inputs that subversive elements might strike in the city, police said on Saturday.
The entire police and paramilitary set-up in Mumbai had been put on guard, they said.
Mumbai police commissioner A N Roy said that inputs had warned police to be on guard between August 15 to 20. "Tomorrow being the last day of the warning, we are being extra cautious," he said.
Roy said vital installations, prominent places and places of importance were under heavy security since Independence Day and would continue to remain so at least for a few days ahead.
Informed sources said that intelligence agencies had tipped Mumbai police that some 'leftover' groups of terrorist outfits were still roaming in the country and Mumbai could still be their target for subversive activities.
