India has sounded an alert over a possible militant attack on the cricket World Cup, a government official said on Wednesday, but he added that there was no specific threat.
"There have been a large number of inputs over the last couple of months," said UK Bansal, Secretary, Internal Security.
"All these put together could be an opportunity, which anti-India elements could exploit.
"We are sounding an alert," Bansal added.
The cricket tournament is being held in India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka and will end on April 2 in Mumbai.
Indian authorities say they have taken measures to ensure the high-profile tournament is safe.
