"We have intelligence inputs that there is threat of terrorist attack in the city on December 6. As a precautionary measure, we have extensively beefed up security in the city and our forces will be on alert," Joint Commissioner of Police Satish K Sharma said.
"It is a very sensitive day, as the Babri masjid was demolished in Ayodhya on this day in 1992 and we have to be cautious to see that there is no untoward incident or communal tension. Patrolling in sensitive areas has also been increased," Sharma added.
Police has also cancelled permission to take out two rallies on December 6 following the security threat, Sharma informed.
Prabbudh Nagrik Shakti Manch floated by former Gujarat chief ministers Shankarsinh Vaghela and Suresh Mehta and Gujarat State Employees Coordination Committee had taken permission to take out rallies to highlight issues of government employees on that day in the city.
