Police security withdrawn from Jewish centres in city

| December 16, 2009

PUNE: The police have tightened security in the city following recent intelligence inputs that Taliban-trained terrorists have sneaked into Mumbai, Kolkata and Delhi to target vital installations. However, the security at the Ohel David synagogue (Lal Deval) in Pune Camp and Chabad House at Koregaon Park have been withdrawn.

A tight security was being maintained at the two Jewish centres from mid-October following an alert by central intelligence agencies that the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) was planning to target Jewish religious places in Pune. The governments of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Delhi and West Bengal were put on high alert then.

No policemen were seen at the synagogue and Chabad House when this reporter went visiting there. However, the entrances to both places were barricaded.
