Security agencies are working in overdrive mode after the Railway Protection Force (RPF) found a letter at Mumbai’s Dadar Railway Station with information that suggests that a terror attack may be carried out at a railway station in either Mumbai or Pune in Maharashtra. An alert has been sounded by the Government Railway Police (GRP), Mumbai after the letter was found. The letter also contains three mobile phone numbers. A probe has been launched to verify the authenticity of the letter, according to The Indian Express.

Sources have told IE that, a young woman handed over a blue purse containing the letter to Railway Protection Force constables who were on duty at a pedestrian bridge at the Dadar railway station around 9:30 AM in the morning. An officer privy to the investigations in the case told the Indian Express that the woman who handed over the purse to the policemen has been questioned. Agencies have also questioned people linked to the three mobile numbers. No arrests have been made in the case so far, The Indian Express reported.

The letter, now in possession of security agencies, states that “Chhota Shakil has sent a man from Pakistan to carry out a big blast in Mumbai or Pune. Muzaffar Shaha will come to Mumbai from Pune to assist in making the plan. He will tell you what has to be done,” as per the Indian Express.
