ISIS warns of attack on India, Taj Mahal on the hit list

Taj Mahal in AgraReuters

Hours after there were reports of two low-intensity blasts in Agra early on Saturday morning, city police officials declared that preliminary investigations seem to indicate only one of the two was a "crude bomb blast".

India boosted security at the Taj Mahal after a pro-IS group warned of attacks in the country and threatened the Taj Mahal, police said Friday. The cops also said that Saifullah was "self-radicalised".

Security has been beefed up at the monument in the wake of the reported threats.

Andaman Express reportedly crashed into a huge boulder on the tracks last night near another station 20 km away and police recovered a note at the site threatening of terror attacks.
