Random checks are being carried out at all exit and entry points into the state and Mumbai.

Buildings housing key commercial establishments have also issued strict instructions regarding parking of vehicles.

Random checks are being carried out at all railway stations and passenger trains.

Earlier this week, police officials held meetings with businessmen, students and people from various walks of life to alert them of terrorist designs and to ensure their cooperation in maintaining a high degree of security.
