He said as soon as the report of terrorist attack in Dhaka was received here, BSF and all other security forces including state police, were alerted so that no unwanted element could cross the border to enter in Indian territory.

Twenty hostages, including 19-year-old Indian teenager Tarishi Jain, were hacked to death by terrorists inside the cafe popular with expats in the diplomatic zone before commandos launched an assault killing six attackers and capturing one alive.
