The Andhra Pradesh government will constitute a special force to tackle terrorist activities, Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhar Reddy announced in Hyderabad on Tuesday.

The proposed wing, on the lines of anti-Naxalite unit Greyhounds, will be given training on par with international standards and modern facilities, said Reddy.

The chief minister took the decision to constitute the special anti-terror force after reviewing the law and order situation at a high-level meeting in Andhra Pradesh.

The meeting took stock of the present situation, after twin blasts at two popular spots in Hyderabad killed 43 people and injured many more on Saturday.

A committee of senior police officials will recommend modalities of the special force, said Reddy. He also reviewed the progress of the ongoing investigations.
