Army deployed around Parliament House

The Army has been deployed in around Parliament House, the prime minister's residence and North and South Blocks, where key ministries are located, Defence Minister George Fernandes said today. The move comes in the wake of the terrorist attack on Parliament House earlier in the day.

The deployment would be carried out in the perimeter of Parliament House, he said adding that the Army would also guard the residences of the home minister and leader of the Opposition.

Fernandes told reporters that "we are capable of dealing with any situation which may have been created by Pakistan".

Meanwhile, Law Minister Arun Jaitley said all MPs and others within the precincts of Parliament House are safe.

He said most of the terrorists involved in the incident have been killed though he could not confirm whether there were any civilian casualties.
