Sheela Bhatt in New Delhi and Dilip Patel in Gandhinagar | August 22, 2006 18:03 IST

Denying reports that armed men have entered the Kakrapar atomic power station, Gujarat government sources said the power station and Kakarapar dam are safe and no one has entered the two sensitive sites.

Amit Shah, Gujarat's minister of state for home told, "Local people had informed Central Industrial Security Force that they have seen two armed people in the area near Kakarapar. Accordingly, CISF which is responsible for the security of the power project informed the local police and combing operations were carried out."

Shah said, "We assure you that power project and the dam are safe. There is no reason to panic."

A senior engineer at the dam site told, "We have carried out combing operation and no intruders have been found at the dam site."
