Al-Qaida, LeT threat to World Cup

In what will put the security apparatus of the 2011 World Cup on high alert, the intelligence bureau has warned of possible terror attacks during matches, which are held in India.
Times Now has accessed the Intelligence Director's letter to all the DGPs and the chief secretaries of all the coastal states, warning that terror groups like Al-Qaida and the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) are seeking time frames of the matches in the country.
The letter also says that the terrorists are planning a 26/11 type attack in India during world cup matches.
The letter dated March 2, 2011 read, "Al Qaida & LeT are planning near term attack. Urdu speaking LeT cadres are likely to try to sneak into India in the next few weeks. Zabiuddin Ansari & his operations network which were behind the German Bakery attack in Pune are seeking the time frame of the World Cup matches in India."
"Attack would be on par with the number of operative who participated in the 26/11 attacks. Some members of this cell are already in the country & some likely to arrive soon. Please take necessary precautions in your respective jurisdictions to detect any such attempt," the letter adds.
Reacting to the alert from intelligence agencies, BCCI Media Wing chairman Rajiv Shukla said, "We are in touch with the ministry of home affairs. We are taking all the required precautions. The local administration and state government are making all the necessary security arrangements for the players, officials and spectators."
